You would need to put those words inbetween the anchor tags. View Below

<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>

thanks

It looks like you forgot to put in the double quotation marks in the anchor tags. see below.

    <li><a href="index.html"></a></li>
    <li><a href="About.html"></a></li>
    <li><a href="Contact.html"></a></li>

thanks
