Why is my code wrong for 'Add a nested ordered list to the Shapes list?' (task 5 of 6)?

I can't move pass this task but the code looks correct to me. Any help would be appreciated.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>HTML Lists Challenge</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <h1>HTML Lists Challenge</h1>
    <ol>
      <li>Stop</li>
      <li>Drop</li>
      <li>Roll</li>
    </ol>
    <ul>
      <li>Shapes</li>
        <ol>
          <li></li>
          <li></li>
          <li></li>
        </ol>
      <li>Colors</li>
    </ul>
  </body>
</html>

Hi Christian

The nested ordered list should be inside the Shapes <li>. You currently have it outside the Shapes' <li>.

<ul>
      <li>Shapes
        <ol>
          <li></li>
          <li></li>
          <li></li>
        </ol>
       </li>
      <li>Colors</li>
    </ul>

Thanks Chris. Just started learning html and I'm realising how easy it is to miss the most simple things!
