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

Hi everyone! In this step, I was told to change the “background-color” property to “background,” but when I did exactly this, it says that my code is not passing the test. I looked at the hint when the code did not pass, but it’s not telling me to do anything that I didn’t already do. Please help! I can’t move forward until I pass this step.

Thank you in advance!

  **Your code so far**
/* file: index.html */
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <title>Colored Markers</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
  <h1>CSS Color Markers</h1>
  <div class="container">
    <div class="marker red">
    <div class="marker green">
    <div class="marker blue">
/* file: styles.css */
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%);

I would

  1. make sure you aren’t using an extension that changes CSS (like dark mode extensions)

  2. try a non-Apple browser (Apple ignores various technology standards from time to time)

Hi Jeremy,

Thank you so much! Changing browsers to Google Chrome solved it for me!
