First of all there are some HTML elements that are in the <head> of the page you should check again which elements can be nested between the <head> tags and fix your code. When you fix your code you will pass the challenge because it ask to put your top <ul> in <nav> tags and you have done it

 <nav>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
    </ul>
 </nav>
  • First, these tags should be in the body element, not the head.
    <header>

    </header>
      <section>
       <ul></ul>
      <h1></h1>
      <p></p>
  • Second, these elements should be surrounded by the header tags.
  <nav>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
    </ul>
    </nav>



    <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
    <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>
  • Third, there should be an opening section tag above the h2 element.
  • Finally, you've correctly surrounded the top ul element with the nav tags.

Actually, I'd remove the tags for the first part of my reply and just add the necessary tags for the second and third parts.
