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

image tag

Make sure you add an image tag, it was/is added. I have restarted this several times and keep getting this error?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Tim Pearson</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>
        <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg">
          </a>
        </li>
        <li></li>
        <li></li>
      </ul
    </section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

I tried it this way, without the src part after, I have tried it with the <a/> closing tag, on and on and keeps rejecting it??

In your code you have an anchor link to an image, but not an actual image link. Try <img src="">, but place your image link in the quotes. There is also another small error in your syntax that may be causing an issue, depending on how picky the program is.

Like Eric says an anchor will not display the image itself and his solution should fix it :D you also have not closed the unordered list correctly, you have:

</ul 

instead you need

</ul> 

though this is likely not causing the immediate issue.

Also just to point out you can use a link to an image either locally or from a external website e.g

<img src="/path/to/img/numbers-01.jpg"> 
or 
<img src="http://somesite.tld/img/numbers-01.jpg">

Hope this helps :D
