Hi Mike Sharp ,

Thank you for sharing a snapshot of your Workspace! That helps a lot to debug it.

Looks like you accidentally typed #gallery l1 instead of #gallery li. That in itself should do the trick.

Additionally, something that's not giving you problems yet, but will do as soon as you create the other pages is that you wrongly typed the closing tag for the last of the pages. That is, this one:

<li><a href="index.html" class="selected">Portfolio</a></li>
<li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.html">Contact<a/></li> <!-- In this one, the closing <a> tag 
should have the slash before the a, otherwise it will give you trouble later 
when you link to the Contact page -->

Thank you very much Nico!
