Hi there,

looks as though you have used capitals inside the href attributes. File links are case sensitive so should look as follows:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lists and Links</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <ul>
      <li> <a href="cakes.html">cakes<a/></li>
      <li> <a href="pies.html">pies</a></li>
      <li> <a href="candy.html">candy</a></li>
    </ul>
  </body>
</html>

Hope this helps, Shaun

thank you very much

I'm stuck with the Challenge Exercise at the end of HTML Basics.

It's telling me:

You need to set the 'href' attribute of the second <a> element to 'pies.html'.

I am not seeing the error. The code below is copy/pasted from my Challenge Workspace.

I also tried it with a space between the <li> <a> but still same error.

  <ul>
    <li><a href="cakes.html">cakes</li>
    <li><a href="pies.html">pies</li>
    <li><a href="candy.html">candy</li>
  </ul>
