Challenge: Attach a Fallback value to a CSS Variable

Link to the challenge:

You were not supposed to fix the typos. Leave the spelling as --pengiun-skin so that the fallback value will be used.

You’ve made the mistake that a lot of people make on this:

The original was:

    /* Change code below this line */
    background: var(--pengiun-skin);
    /* Change code above this line */

and you’ve changed it too:

  /* Change code below this line */
  background: var(--penguin-skin, black);
  /* Change code above this line */

Adding the fallback is good, but you changed the misspelling of “penguin” - you’re supposed to leave that. That’s the point - that the variable doesn’t work “for some unknown reason” and you need the fallback. The instructions say, “Rather than fix the typo…” I would Reset All Code and redo it without fixing the typo.

Thank you so much, appreciate your help.
