how to link

I should link "Portfolio" with index.html.

I did, but it says I did it wrong. I do not see a mistake

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"></a>Portfolio</li>
          <li><a href="about.html"></a>About</li>
          <li><a href="contact.html"></a>Contact</li>
        </ul>
    </header>
    <section></section>
    <footer>
      <p>copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

Your so close! Just remember to enclose the label 'Portfolio' between the opening and closing a tags.

<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>

Well done though and keep up the good work!

Link elements will allow the content inside to link to other documents. You have the element closing directly before the text. Try moving the </a> closing element to after the word you would like to link to other pages.

<a href="index.html">Portfolio</a>
