Hi ziv aviv ,

You're doing fine, just a couple of hints.

  1. You were not required at any moment to add any <aside> or <main> tags, so I suggest you remove those.

  2. The footer was required only for "the paragraphs at the bottom of the page", right? So no need for it to include any additional tags.

  3. Your <section> element has to go and cover everything that is not a header or a footer.

I think with those you'll surely be on your way, but if there's any other doubt, feel free to follow up.

Where </header> ends

and <footer> begins, you should place your <section> -------Paragraph-Here--------</section>

Example:

</header> <section> <body> <ul> <li><a href="#">About</a></li> <li><a href="#">Work</a></li> <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
</ul> </section>

<footer>

Hiya Ziv! The question is asking you to place three tags "<ul>", "<p>" and "<h1>" on the top of the page inside "<header>" tag. All you've to do is just place all 'em tags inside your header tag.

<header>
      <ul></ul>
      <h1></h1>
      <p></p>
</header>

Ari Misha when I do this (what you told me) it says:
Bummer! Make sure the section element is between the header and footer. Do you have any other solution? And thank you for the reply by the way :)
