HTML HTML Lists HTML Lists - Ordered and Unordered

Nested Ordered List Problem..caused by the system bug

Guys I think there is a bug on the system regarding the nested ordered list on the HTML course challenge, 5, I tried many time to pass it, after extended search I manage to prove that, I put the same code and it works fine on http://www.w3schools.com I have a picture but I don't know how to load it?

As a result I couldn't pass this part of the course which took a lot of times, could you please fix this problem?

Hi Ahmed,

If you look to the bottom right of the text box you will see something that says Markdown Cheetsheet. Also, there is a post here titled: Posting Code to the Forum by Dave McFarland. If you don't understand that maybe this will make sense: How to display code at Treehouse.

It works fine on the website I mentioned before:

•Shapes 1.A 2.B •Colors

Hi Ahmed,

Check the links that Jeff posted so you can post your code correctly. We can't help you because all the html tags are stripped out.

I wouldn't trust w3schools either.

Paste your html into the validator at http://validator.w3.org/ and see what you come up with.

An way I need some body to help me to pass this part, I am getting frustrated from it, I couldn't pass it, although I put the right code from this form posted by (James Barnett ). The problem on HTML List challenge code question 5 out of six, nested list.

Here you go.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>HTML Lists Challenge</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <h1>HTML Lists Challenge</h1>

    <!-- Write your code below -->
        <ol>
      <li>Stop</li>
      <li>Drop</li>
      <li>Roll</li>
    </ol>

    <ul>
      <li>Shapes
        <ol>
          <li>Square</li>
          <li>Circle</li>
        </ol>
      </li>
      <li>Colors</li>
    </ul>

Thank you Jeff Busch I will try this, and hope it works.

Great Job.. I passed this course which took me 4 days to figure out the problem.. thank you Jeff Busch again.
