Hi Steve,

You need to put your list items inside a "< ul >" and a closing "< /ul >". An unordered list tag or an ordered list tag is a parent of the list item (li) tag.

<ul>
  <li>"portfolio"</li>
  <li>"about"</li>
  <li>"contact"</li>
</ul>

Most tags need closing with a second "closing" tag. The main exeptions are the

<link>, <hr /> <img> and <br />

tags.

i am stumped, i put it inside the ul just like you said and it is still showing up wrong, I re posted the question with the new code if you see it.

Hi Steve,

Sorry, didn't realise you had this post. I've answered it over in your other question :)

Hope it helps

-Rich

Thanks for the help
