How do I get the challenge code checker to advance?

It claims I haven't added alt text, but I clearly have... I made sure I did it just like the video.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>
    <section>
      <ul>
        <li>
          <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">

        <li>
          <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt="">

      </ul>

Try adding an equal sign before the quotes

Ex. alt="Facebook Logo"

im new to tree house also but i've completed this coarse already :)

P.S thanks Marcus P

It's no problem because you're exactly right! There just needs to be an = sign in between the alt attribute and the beginning " and a space right after the src's value ^_^

      <img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Facebook Logo">
      <img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook Logo">   

thanks marcus, whew i knew i was right i just doubted, hey marcus am i able to get help from teachers or other students on specific question about Html ?

Absolutely! Just post your questions on the main forums and many helpful students will help you. I'm up right now and browsing, so I'll help you. If you want to go ahead and post your question on the main forum, I'll help you out on your own post to keep this thread from getting sidetracked.
