kunal patel - You forgot to close the closing angle bracket > on your img tag.

As James said, you need to add a closing angle bracket to your 'img' tag. Everything else looks fine.

thank you that worked.

James ~ was having same problem. Shouldn't the step before be the place we were told we were doing something wrong? I spent an hour trying to figure out what I was missing since I was using ul tags, never even looking at the image code since that had been given a green light. Seems like a misguided and confusing instructional step.

Jennifer Loughborough - You are right! You found a bug in correctness check of the code challenge.

It checking for a / instead of checking for />

Or, what you meant to say James is that you guys are trying to show us to look at code beyond the current line when troubleshooting. Right? ;-)

Jennifer Loughborough - I actually wrote a reply saying that very thing. But then I decided to double check just in case there was an actual bug.


Here's my original reply

I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to as you didn't post any code.

However in general, that's not how code works. An issue in one place in your code can cause something to break in an entirely different place in your code.
