Hi @matthewgrathwol !

You are using incorrect syntax here.

That HTML should not be in your CSS.

Remember that this is the basic syntax for CSS selectors.

selector {
styles go here

Make sure to follow that basic syntax for the body

body {background=color: brown

Solved it with background-color not =
