Why is the HTML for the array with the wrong questions indented?

I've gone over and over the code but I can't figure out why the heading and ordered list of wrong items is being indented. My code is below:

var quiz = [ ["What number does four score represent?", "80"], ["What is the meaning of life?", 42], ["How many in a dozen?", "12"] ];

function quizBowl( questions ) {

var answer; var correct = []; var wrong = []; var html; var score = 0;

for (var i = 0; i < questions.length; i++){
  answer = prompt(questions[i][0]);

 if (answer === questions[i][1])
 {  
  correct.push(questions[i][0]);
  score += 1;
 }
  else {
  wrong.push(questions[i][0]);
  }
}

html = "<h2>You got " + score + " right!</h2>"; html += "<h3>You got these question(s) correct:</h3> <ol> <li>" + correct.join('</li><li>') + "</li></<ol>"; html += "<h3>You got these question(s) wrong:</h3> <ol> <li>" + wrong.join('</li><li>') + "</li></<ol>";

print(html); }

quizBowl(quiz);

That's because the list above it has not been closed.

There's a stray "<" symbol in this string: "</li></<ol>". This causes the closing tag of the ol list to be ignored.

Also, I noticed that the answer to the second question isn't enclosed in quotes, so it won't ever match the input. There's some other minor issues but with this fixed I'll bet you can work them out.
