I added a nested ordered list in Shapes in the following code but it's still not accepting. Am I missing something?

<ul> <li>Shapes</li> <ol> <li>One</li> <li>Two</li> <li>Three</li> </ol> <li>Colors</li> </ul>

    <ol>
      <li>Stop</li>
      <li>Drop</li>
      <li>Roll</li>
   </ol>

    <!-- Write your code below -->


    <ul>
      <li>Shapes</li>
      <ol>

:point_right: The children of a list element (ul or ol) should all be list items (li).

If you add another element, including another list, to a list item it should be completely inside the list item tags.

Depending on the browser, your code might be displayed so that it appears the same, but the challenge mechanism is directly examining the code.

Treehouse corrected it, but I had the same exact code in it. I wonder if it's a malfunction?

Hello, try putting the nested <ol></ol> items before the closing </li> tag for Shapes.
