what am doing wrong? ordered list.

Sooo I am asked to create an ordered list that should look like this: 1."Stop" 2."Drop"

  1. "Roll"

and I typed this html code:

<ol> <li>"Stop"</li> <li>"Drop"</li> <li>"Roll"</li> </ol>

why isn't it accepted? very strange. Thank you for helping out here.

see the markdown cheatsheet (there is a link located at the bottom right of the comment textbox) for instructions on how to markdown your code so it shows up in the forum.
