HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Organize with Unordered Lists

I have done what the directions have asked me to do however I keep getting a "Bummer" message. Could you please help?

I have added the <li> and </li> three times as it asks and it doesn't work

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>
          <li></li>
          <li></li>
          <li></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>
    <section>
    </section>
    <footer>

    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

You placed your unordered list into the wrong html element. The directions state place it in the section element element but you added it to an already existing unorder list in the nav element.

Try this:

<!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></li>
          <li></li>
          <li></li>
       </ul>
    </section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

Thank you!!!
