Issue with linking task: Challenge Task 3 of 3 "Creating HTML Content"

I'm running into a problem linking Portfolio to "index.html". I believe I'm writing the code correctly. I've tried it a few times but no success.

Can you please provide the code you are trying?

Under the text area where you post an answer you will find some text that reads "You can format your discussion with Markdown. If you aren't familiar with Markdown you can reference the Markdown Cheatsheet" It's right above the "Post answer" button. Click the bolded "Markdown Cheatsheet" for all the ways that you can format you post.

To enter code use the ` mark 3 times. Once to start your code and another time to end it.

I have the same error. It says the portfoilo should link to "index.html".

My line of code is. <li><a href="index.html"> Portfolio </a></li>

I believe this to be correct, but maybe I'm wrong.

Hey Michael,

Which challenge are you having trouble with?

Thanks for the response. It is the same one as this, but I got through it. I do find it annoying that you can only pass this particular code challenge if you write dysfunctional code. It makes you delete the closing tags in order to complete it. It is bizarre.
