It says i got Task One correct, and lets me move to Task Two. Then it says One is "no longer passing"

So when I answer Task One, it says it's correct and lets me move to Task Two. When I type my answer for Task Two, instead of telling me whether I am right or wrong, it says "Oops, Task One is no longer passing. Go back to Task One." So then I go back to Task One, type my answer, and it says it's correct. When I press next and answer Task Two, I keep getting the same "Task One is no longer passing." I believe it's a technical problem, but I don't see a way around it.

You'll notice here that the syntax color highlighting looks not quite right. The issue here is that for each link you've missed out the closing quotation marks around the URLs in your href properties. This is causing Task One to fail as it thinks <img src= is no longer an image element, but part of the URL you're linking to (highlighted in pink)
