I have no idea what's wrong with my code. It seems to match the video but it fails for whatever reason.

Hello, I'm not sure what's wrong with my code. I just want eyes on this so I know what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!

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>

Hi Elaine,

It looks like your first list element is missing the forward slash character ("/") in the closing tag. If you add that back in it should fix it.

Hi Elain,

I went over the quiz. Benjamin is spot on; your missing the '/' in the closing li tag.

Good luck!
