Special characters must be escaped: [<] My code is giving this error in adobe DW.

This is the piece of code: <ul> <li><a href= "http://twitter.com/treehouse" target= "_blank"</a><i class= "fab fa-twitter-square icon"></i></li> <li><a href= "http://linkedin.com" target= "_blank"</a> <i class= "fab fa-linkedin icon"></li></i> <li><a href= "http://github.com" target= "_blank"</a><i class= "fab fa-github-square icon"></li></i> </ul>

I'm not familiar with "adobe DW", but "escaping" usually involves placing a special character in front of another one to indicate that it should be used literally.

A common "escape" character is the backslash ("\"). Give that a try.
