The instructions say "Set the "Home" link to a root-relative path that navigates to index.html.", but there's no mention of a specific tag ID to target.

Also, it may work without an explicit name, but it would be better not to assume which file name the server will use as a default.

Setting the link means filling in the "href" property value, and "root relative" basically means "start with a slash", and then you add the file name:

      <li><a href="/index.html">Home</a></li>
