Why isn't this linking

Its asking me to link each html to an outside source, what is wrong here?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lists and Links</title>
      <a href="cakes.html">cakes</a>
      <a href="pies.html">pies</a> 
      <a href="candy.html">candy</a>

Hi Haley,

As stated by stjarnan, the a element with the href attribute should be nested within the li element, it should read as follows:

<li><a href="path"> Desired Text </a></li>

Likewise, once corrected, ensure that you have the right path files, remember they are relative to the file you are coding within.

Hope this helps, Leon.

Hi Haley,

You just need to add this model of block code

<li><a href="url Path"> Text </a></li>
