I am having problems turning a picture into a clickable link. I have looked back and tried it again about 6 times at different points. Nothing I try to do works!

An image is coded like this:
<img src="http://www.imagename.jpg"/> .
A link is coded like this:
<a href="">GOOGLE</a>.
To insert an image inside of a link just replace the title of the link(ex: GOOGLE) by the whole image code (example 1). Like this:
<a href=""><img src="http://www.imagename.jpg"/></a>

Also please do not post code in this small windows it is just too difficult to see and to try to explain. Use a big window on the bottom where we can reformat your code.

This lesson has flaws. They donĀ“t work.

Why would you say that? The first thing to look at is to see if everyone is stuck on the same problem. I don't think so, I passed it on my first try. Out a million students there is a small percentage that have a problem here. Saying that the lesson has flaws is like giving up on the first try. This has to do with understanding what an image is, and what a link is. If you need help with that, there are many students that can help but please don't blame it on the lesson itself. It;'s like shooting yourself in the foot!
