What behavior are you not seeing that you wish you were seeing?

The Task

Place the ul, h1 and p elements at the top of the page inside an element that represents a group of introductory or navigational content.

I placed an opening <nav> tag on lines underneath the <body> tag. I also placed a closing </nav> tag after the </p> tag.

Keep getting an error

nvm I did the challenge.

There are plenty of ways to design your navigation.

In HTML, some semantic markup that helps communicate that "this" is a navigational bar are:

<div id="navbar"></div>
<div class="navbar"></div>
<nav></nav>
<header></header>

Give those a shot, and see which one works for you!
