Hi Harris,

You want to use the backtick character to post your code. This is above the tab key.

Hi Harris,

You have placed the nav element inside the link. The challenge wants you to put it after the link that's around the h1 and h2

It should be inside the header but after the already existing closing </a>

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

"The portfolio list item should link to "index.html" though i think it is. what's the mistake and i cannot continue? Thank you for your time and effort in advance.
