nav element misaligned with html link, I've tried everything? why do i keep getting this message?
trying to insert nav elments and an unordered list under an html link and i keep getting the same message that the opening nav element is not properly aligned with the html link. any thoughts?
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Nick Pettit</title> </head> <body> <header> <a href="index.html"> <nav> <ul> <li>Portfolio</li> <li>about</li> <li>Contacts</li> </ul> </nav> <h1>Nick Pettit</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </a> </header> <section></section> <footer> <p>© 2013 Nick Pettit.</p> </footer> </body> </html>
The challenge tells you to create this nav after the anchor element and you are creating it inside the anchor element.
This is the correct one:
<header> <a href="index.html"> <h1>Nick Pettit</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </a> <nav> <ul> <li>Portfolio</li> <li>About</li> <li>Contact</li> </ul> </nav> </header>

The challenge wants you to add the nav element and unordered list underneath the "logo" (the h1 and h2 that are wrapped in a link < a >). Yours is inside the < a > tag.

You need to add the nav element after the link instead of inside it like this
<header> <a href="index.html"> <h1>Nick Pettit</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </a> <nav> <ul> </ul> </nav> </header>
