What is wrong with my code in the code challenge?

I'm doing the code challenge in How to Make a Website and I have to add the images facebook-wrap.png and twitter-wrap.png with alternative text for the images. When I do so, it tells me to add alternative text, and I already did.

<img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt"Facebook logo">
<img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt"Twitter logo">
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
          <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">
          <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt="">
          <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt="">
      <a href="https://facebook.com/otto__me">
        <img src="img/faceook-wrap.png" alt"Facebook logo"></a>

        <img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt"Twitter logo"></a>

There's a special character missing.

all property value combinations must have the equality set.

You need an = between alt and the alt text

Heya Otto,

The problem lies in the way you formatted the alt attribute. Take a look at the way the images that are in the unordered list within the <section> container are formatted. Now look at your attempt to add the alt text.

What's missing?

Edit: Well, I tried helping you along to figure it out but you've been given the answer flat out. Oh well.
