I do not see what i am missing in my code

The exercise is to add 3 images to the unordered list, then make 3 lists with image tags "numbers-01.jpg", "numbers-02.jpg" and "numbers-06.jpg". I ran it on the text editor and also on the preview of the exercise and the images come out fine.

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">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>
    <section>
      <ul>

        <li> <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg">
          <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt""> </a> </li>

        <li> <a href="img/numbers-02.jpg"> 
          <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt""> </a> </li>

        <li><a href="img/numbers-06.jpg">
          <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt""> </a> </li>

      </ul>

Hi Henry

The challenge was to just add the images only, without links:

<section>
      <ul>
        <li><img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""></li>
        <li><img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""></li>
        <li><img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""></li>
      </ul>
    </section>

Hey Henry,

You're on the right path, but there are two things. First, you're missing the equal sign for the alt attributes in all three images. It should be alt="".

Second, the challenge explicitly states

don’t add any captions or links. Just the images!

but you added links. You'll need to remove those, and then the rest will pass.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
