why is my hyperlink including my paragraph underneath

In my footer, I have buttons to twitter and to facebook. following my facebook link I have a paragraph of copywrite info. Why is my website preview creating a facebook link out of the copywrite paragraph? I closed the facebook link.

  <a href="http://twitter.com/nickrp"><img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter Logo"</a>

After alt="Facebook Logo", you forgot the closing bracket >. Add that and you should be fine.

It might have something to do with how your image tag doesn't have a closing bracket.

Hi Heather,

Jenna is correct, you forgot to close your img tags properly. See below for an example:

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

I agree, The herf tag should always look like <a href=""><img src="" alt=""></a>
