Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 18

Tell us what’s happening:

Hello everyone,

I’m really stuck here. I know I’m supposed to change the background color to brown within the body element. My code is listed below and I am having some confusion on where I am going wrong. Maybe I didn’t put my body element in the right place or set up my background-color property right. If someone could explain what I am doing wrong, that would be greatly appreciated.

Your code so far

<!-- file: index.html -->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Cafe Menu</title>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
  </head>
  <body>
    <main>
      <h1>CAMPER CAFE</h1>
      <p>Est. 2020</p>
      <section>
        <h2>Coffee</h2>
      </section>
    </main>
  </body>
</html>
/* file: styles.css */

/* User Editable Region */

<body>background-color;brown</body>
h1, h2, p {
  text-align: center;
}

/* User Editable Region */

You should not use these type of brackets in css < </> that is html and is not valid in css. The structure you need to follow is

element{
   property: value;
}

as the directions say background-color property to brown for the body element.

Interesting. I must’ve missed that in the directions. I have a question about html and css. Are you not supposed to use <> in css at all or just under certain cicrumstances?

< > and </> brackets are for html only. They are not used in css
