Hi Nigel,

I'm not sure which task you are on... as you have the HTML for Task 3 but that should not have passed Task 2.

The reason you are not passing are a few typing / capitalization errors. The names of the nav links should start with capital letters (as per the instructions), but the link paths should be all lower-case (also per the instructions). You seem to have them all mixed and matched?

Just fix up the typing and the tasks will pass. Remember, as with real-life coding, the challenges and instructions are very specific. If you don't do exactly what is instructed, you will end up with the Bummer!.

Keep Coding! :dizzy: :)

Thank you Jason you are a life saver I've been muddled on this challenge for 2days and the frustration mounted up when I mistakenly wiped my work the other day. So thank you
