I do not understand why the Portfolio list item doesn't link to index.html in the code

Just check the code, I do not see the mistake.

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>
        <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>
      </a>
    </header>
    <section>   
    </section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

It should be working fine, although one thing I've noticed is your entire nav is wrapped in an Anchor tag

eg:

<header>
      <a href="index.html"> <!-- ANCHOR STARTS HERE - REMOVE THIS -->
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
        <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>
      </a><!-- ANCHOR ENDS HERE - REMOVE THIS -->
    </header>

That's odd. I could have sworn I saw someone do this a month or 2 ago while going through the same course.

Ah I see, Jamie you have to make sure you read the questions carefully. It states to create your nav element "after the link inside the header." If not read carefully I can see how this one could be confusing.
