I can't figure out where i made an error... I can't progress on. Lesson "Build a Three Column Layout"

On my contact page, where we added <section id="primary"> and <section id="secondary">

I ran into a problem where half my code is highlighted red and I've spent half an hour trying to figure it out

I removed some private information, but i left the bare bones to see if there's any obvious mistakes.

<div id="wrapper> <section id="primary"> <h3>General Information</h3> <p>Insert Contact Information Here</p> <p>Preferred communication via email</p> </section> <section id="secondary"> <h3>Contact Details</h3> <ul class="contact-info"> <li class="phone"><a href="tel:555-6425">555-6425</a></li> <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:j@gmail.com">j@gmail.com</a></li> <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=">@</a> </li>
</ul> </section> <footer> </footer> </div> </body> </html>

Hi Jesse- just to start you are missing an important piece of syntax in your opening Div. <div id="wrapper>

Try adding the closing "

That cleared it up in my workspace. Good luck!

THANK YOU! I can't believe i missed that i combed over it so many times...
