Hello, I am having an issue here. I have entered the UL code exactly as it is in the example but when I press “Run” it says “no response received fro the web browser” and marks the task box with a red X instead of the green check. Could someone take a look at this and see what I have done wrong?
LI stands for List Item, and by definition a list will have multiple items, usually three or more. We denote them with the <li/> tag so the browser can render them as bullet points, or at the very least as separate related items that user agents can identify.
Let’s step back in time, before Web Standards came into vogue. It was common to see the following in scaled down markup,
Then the early standards recommended at least one printable character between each link to set them apart from one another.

Once we had CSS, it was no major leap to implement unordered lists in navigation menus. That took all the guess work out for the user agent. New list item, new link. It also spelled the death knell for table based layouts.
The page tells you to make an unordered list tag and to not add anything to it yet. But, when I click run, after having added an unordered list with nothing added to it, it doesn’t let me continue on. I try doing the second step, even though I shouldn’t be able to after not having completed the first step, and it still doesn’t let me continue on. My code is the exact same as the “replace with solution”, but it doesn’t work! Literally the only way to continue on is to click the light bulb and use replace with solution. I had the same problem with the next part of the course (13/16) so I assume the rest of the course is like this.
