Image and nav is not showing up in my browser

I did this code in Sublime Text 2 and it is not showing up in Google Chrome when I save and refresh. I did the little quiz and passed so I don't know why it isn't showing up. I do get the document title to show up "Smells Like Bakin' etc" just not the image and nav. Here's my code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
  <title>Smells Like Bakin' Cupcake Company<title/>
</head>
<body>
  <img src="img/logo.gif" alt="Smells Like Bakin">
  <ul class="nav">
    <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Cupcakes & Prices</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Locations</a></li>
    <li class="last"><a href="#">Contact Us</a></li>
  </ul>
</body>
</html>

Thanks, Lia

I messed up on the close of the title. <title/> not </title> Hurrah!

By this code you get blank page with all code in document title. Reason is your closing title tag is wrong it should be </title>

Yep that looks like the issue is incorrect closing title tag

Hey thanks for responding. Yeah, my folder looks set up properly and the image is there. The folder and image are straight from the downloads. I just tried the tutorial index.html and that works in my browser, so I can strike that off the list. Weird. I'm going to fuss around with it somewhere. At least I code the code right. Thanks for chiming in James!

Your code is fine, are you sure that there is a folder called img in the same place as you html document and within the img folder the image is named logo.gif. Do your nav items show up? Other than that not sure.

Any luck let me know?
