Set the anchor tag so that it points to the top of the page. (Hint: you'll need the href attribute.)

<a href="#">

    <title>My trip to Spain</title>

    <img src="images/spain.jpg"alt="A picture of me in Spain">
    <P> Here is a picture of me in Spain last summer!</p>
        <li>a> href="http://www.top.com">Go back to the top of the page.

I think the issue is that you have not closed your <a href> (look just after the <li>) -

So the link is broken -

It should read

<li> <a href="XXXX"> To Top </a> </li>

Also if you are trying to link one link to another on the same page you would need to create two links on that page with both the same link location.

This could be

<a href="to-top"> (a link at the top of the page)

< a href="to-top"> (at the bottom of the page)

This will then have the page jump from the bottom to the top

It seems you've put the correct solution on the line just before where your code block starts. The one showing this:

<a href="#">

A few other hints:

  • use lower case for tag names
  • don't change anything in the challenge not asked for (like adding an "li" tag)
  • relative links (such as into the same document) won't have "http://" in them

The attribute name should be "href" ("r" before "e") instead of "herf".
