When I check my work, it shows I don't have my <ul>, but I do... I don't understand were I went wrong, help?

I've checked over the video multiple times and everything I have is correct, yet it tells me I don't have my <ul>, but I do, why is this?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>
    <section>
    </section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

Andrew,

This is how the code looks at the beginning of the challenge, but you haven't yet done what it's instructing you to: you need to create a new unordered list inside the section element. Right now, you'll notice the section element is empty, as I've pointed out with a comment in the code below.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>

    <section><!-- this is where you need to create a ul, but it is currently empty -->
    </section>

    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

It wants you to put the < ul > in a different location. Read the question closer.

Hey Andrew,

This is because you need to put a blank unordered list inside the <section> element.
