HTML HTML Basics Going Further with HTML Email Links and Entities Challenge

why is this not working??

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html>
  <head>
    <title>My Page</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h3>Design & Development</h3>
    <p>Contact me at <a href=mailto:"me@gmail.com">this email</a>.</p>
    <p>&copy; 2017</p>

Your anchor href value should be entirely enclosed in quotation marks.

<a href="mailto:me@gmail.com">this email</a>

The instructions say "Replace the ampersand and copyright symbol with an HTML character entity.", and it looks like you got the copyright symbol but still need to replace the ampersand (in "Design & Development").

And while it doesn't affect passing the challenge, melissamyra's advice is the correct syntax.

yes that was it thank you!
