It is asking me to add images that I downloaded off the page for the challenge. Why won't it recognize them?

I have the following and it is saying it is wrong for some reason.

<section> <ul> <li>img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""</li> <li>img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""</li> <li>img src= "img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""</li> </ul> </section>

I did the same for the other two images it requested but it is saying it is wrong. Are the files not being recognized for the challenge or is something wrong with what I did? It worked in the "workspace".

What do I do?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
       <li>img src= img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""</li>
       <li>img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""</li>
       <li>img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""</li>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>

Kevin, maybe that’s because what you’ve been using is not valid HTML?

Since your img is also an HTML element it must be sandwiched between < and >. So that, instead of the above, you’ll end up with something like:

<img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">

All right? And btw — always be on the lookout for them typos (ex. your first img’s src attribute is missing the opening quote). Cheers.

Thanks! Obvious things like that slip the mind easily when you assume you get that stuff right. Need to keep an eye on those types of typos like you said. Appreciate it!
