I think what I have is correct - CSS Colors - Step 49

Test

Sorry, your code does not pass. Keep trying.

Hint

Your .red CSS rule should have a background property with the value rgb(255, 0, 0) .


Step 49

You’ve learned a few ways to set flat colors in CSS, but you can also use a color transition, or gradient, on an element.

A gradient is when one color transitions into another. The CSS linear-gradient function lets you control the direction of the transition along a line, and which colors are used.

One thing to remember is that the linear-gradient function actually creates an image element, and is usually paired with the background property which can accept an image as a value.

In the .red CSS rule, change the background-color property to background .


My code
.red {
  background: rgb(255, 0, 0);
}

Thanks for the quick response - I do only have it once in the code on the stylesheet.
I posted it twice on the forum of hoping to make the problem clear.

There appears to be an issue with Safari @hoban.richard. Your code passed for me on firefox and chrome, but not safari. Unfortunately, I don’t think you will be able to pass this step on Safari at the moment. I will file an issue to see if we can find a way to fix it. For now, I would recommend just skipping that step, or go complete it on another browser.

h1 {
  text-align: center;
}

.container {
  background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
  padding: 10px 0;
}

.marker {
  width: 200px;
  height: 25px;
  margin: 10px auto;
}

.red {
  background: rgb(255, 0, 0);
}

.green {
  background-color: #007F00;
}

.blue {
  background-color: hsl(240, 100%, 50%);
}

Thanks for the idea. I tried to remove and re-add the red class without success.

Switching to chrome resolved this issue.

Hi, I’m having the same issue and I’m using Safari. It’s the same with step 60. I also tried on Google Chrome without any luck. Is there any way to fix this issue? Thanks.
