Flappy Penguin Step 2

Hello again guys, the error keeps coming up " You should use the background property in the body selector." but havent I done that ? From what Im reading on google and what Ive found on this forum so far it is correct, it is also reading correct on codepen ? can someone guide me a bit.

  **Your code so far**
/* file: index.html */
<!DOCTYPE html>

  <meta charset="UTF-8" />
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="./styles.css" />
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />

/* file: styles.css */
{ background: linear-gradient (45 deg,  rgb(118,201,255),  rgb(247,255,222));}

Hey there :wave:

In CSS white space doesn’t matter too much, but it is used to separate arguments. This means this in your code:

linear-gradient (

It reads the space between “linear-gradient” and “(” as a sign that you’re beginning a new argument, and the linear-gradient function never gets a chance to run.

You have the same thing happen here:

45 deg

Due to the space between “45” and “deg”, it doesn’t put them together as one argument.

Here is my code that just passed that step:

body {
  background: linear-gradient(45deg, rgb(118, 201, 255),rgb(247, 255, 222));

Thats really helpful the White space concept , significant point to remember.
