Error in Step 1 directions?

There is an error in Step 1’s directions.

Directly below the opening <body> tag, add an anchor tag that links to index.html with a relative path. The link should say Brown Bear .

Should say…

Directly below the opening <body> tag, below the <nav>, add an anchor tag that links to index.html with a relative path. The link should say Brown Bear .

Because this fails with the description

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>
    <title>About Me</title>
</head>

<body>
    <a href="./index.html">Brown Bear</a>
    <nav>
        <a href="/">Brown Bear</a>
        <!-- web browsers respond to index.html and / the same way -->
        <a href="aboutme.html">About Me</a>
    </nav>

    <h1>About Me</h1>
    <h3>Michael Doliner</h3>
    <img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/codecademy-content/courses/web-101/htmlcss1-img_brown-bear-2.jpeg">

    <!-- A section that describes the brown bear -->
    <p>Hey, my name is Michael, and there's little I find more exciting than bears! I've spent most of my young life traveling to the edges of Earth to take videos of these wonderful creatures. <br /> <br /> Family, Country, Bears, <br /> <br /> Michael
        D.

    </p>
</body>

</html>

But this passes

<!DOCTYPE html>

<body>
  <nav>
    <a href="/">Brown Bear</a>
    <!-- web browsers respond to index.html and / the same way -->
    <a href="./aboutme.html">About Me</a>
  </nav>

It looks like you’re trying to add the links to the “About Me” page instead of the Index. Notice that there are already links present in below your section. On Index.html there is no <nav> section.
