Challenge: Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 49

Link to the challenge:

Hello. What seems to be the problem here?

In the .red CSS rule, change the background-color property to background .
.red {
background: rgb(255, 0, 0);


Sorry, your code does not pass. Don’t give up.


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

That’s odd, your code passes when I paste it on the exercise. And I know it’s correct too. Try restarting the step and pasting your code back into it. If it doesn’t pass, it might be a bug or an issue with your browser, maybe.

Hello there! I couldn’t identify the problem, it should work. I would try to restart this step. Which browser do you use?

Still not working :frowning:

If you’ve tried restarting the step already, then maybe close your browser and open it again. Sorry for the typical “off and on” response but I can’t think of anything else here.

Still… same :frowning: what could you suggest next?

Hello. I’ve looked around and found this, it might help (if you’re using an apple device).

thanks, that was the problem :slight_smile:
