I just need help with basic HTML. I seemed to mirror everything in HTML basic's but my syntax keeps highlighting red.

I don't see where my error is? My closing header is highlighted except in it's ">" closing end and my "</body>" and "</html> tags are highlighted and I combed through every line and I can't find the problem. Perhaps a pair of second eyes will help. My code is the following: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Experience VR</title> </head>

<body> <header> <h1>Experience VR</h1> <p>A Simple Blog about virtual reality experiences.</p>

  <nav>
    <ul>
      <li> <a href="#">Home</a></li>
      <li> <a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li> <a href="#">Articles</a></li>
      <li> <a href="#">Contact</a></li>
    </ul>
   </nav
  </header>

<p>Virtual Reality is becoming a well known as a form of entertainment, But it's older finding it's way into fields like education, industrial design, healthcare, and so much more.</p>

Hi Max,

You forgot to close your nav element, i.e.

   <nav>
      <ul>
         <li> <a href="#">Home</a></li>
         <li> <a href="#">About</a></li>
         <li> <a href="#">Articles</a></li>
         <li> <a href="#">Contact</a></li>
      </ul>
   </nav>

Next time a vast patch of your HTML or CSS is marked as faulty backtrack your steps until reach the point where all the errors start. Usually the line of HTML/CSS before that is where the problem originates.

Hope it helps, Max
