In midst of Task 5/6 re: nested tables in HTML. Code is right but treehouse keeps saying it's wrong. Help.

Can someone explain why this is "marked" wrong. I am to nest an ordered list under the "Shapes" item. Thank you.

Hi Michelle,

It seems you haven't wrapped the list item around your ordered list.... Please see below :)

    <ol>

      <li>Stop</li>
      <li>Drop</li>
      <li>Roll</li>

    </ol>

    <ul>

      <li>Shapes<!-- Open Wrapper For Nesting ol -->

        <ol>
          <li>Square</li>
          <li>Circle</li>
        </ol>

      </li><!-- Close Wrapper For Nesting ol -->

      <li>Colors</li>   

    </ul>

Hope this helps! it should work it passed the code challenge :) Craig

It's possible that you need to capitalise Squares and Circles in your code. Code Challenges are very unforgiving when they don't see the exact strings they're expecting. :-)

Hope this helps :)

Thank you, gentlemen. I did both. Cut and pasted in fact. And the solutions worked. Thank you.
