Task 2 passes but task 3 when checking work refers back to task 2 no longer passing.

So, I have done task 2 for this section, passes okay, created an unordered list element inside nav elements, all seems okay and passes me, when I go to Task 3 an attempt to add an a href element, it refers me back to Task 2 as no longer 'passing'.

So I go back to task 2 and literally change nothing, then click check work and it passes me...

Not sure how to progress this?

Your problem is that you have an additional ">" character next to the word Portfolio and About.

Portfolio></a> and About></a>

The error is in your link tags. Make sure when you have your tags you don't have extra characters. Portfolio and About both looked like.... <a href="index.html">Portfolio></a> Watch out for your extra > The link tags should read as below. Hope this helps!

        <a href="index.html">Portfolio</a>
        <a href="about.html">About</a>
        <a href="contact.html">Contact</a>
