It's telling me I need to set the second attribute to 'pies.html' which I seem to have unless I'm missing something??

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lists and Links</title>
   <li><a href='cakes.html'>Cakes</li>
   <li><a href='pies.html'>Pies</li>
   <li><a href='candy.html'>Candy</li>

Hi there, William Guasch! You're really close. The problem, as it so often is, is on the previous line. An anchor tag is not "self-closing". Each list item you have should have an <a> and a </a>.

So this:

<li><a href='cakes.html'>Cakes</li>

Should look like:

<li><a href='cakes.html'>Cakes</a></li>  <!-- Note  the </a>

That should be true for each line.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thank you, after looking at a lot of the other similar posts I figured it might be something small and silly that I was missing. Very much appreciate the help!
