What am I doing wrong here?

On one of the review questions I am working on, I keep getting the following message: "Oops! It looks like task two is no longer passing"

Can someone tell me what this means and where I am going wrong?

Thx in advance!

Hey Eric Pittarelli. It looks like your nav is missing the closing </li> and your hrefs are incorrect on your links. view below

<nav>
       <ul>
            <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
            <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
       </ul>
</nav>

EDIT: you also need to add text to your links.

EDIT - I put this in the wrong section.

Two bits - your anchor elements should be HREF not just REF.

Also - in step two, you added words to each list item. As your code is - you have no visual text for the users to click on. Try adding the words Home, About & Contact between your anchors.

<a href= "website.html"> TEXT GOES HERE </a>
