Tell us what’s happening:
It says that margin top and bottom do not work.
[type=‘checkbox’] {
margin: 10px 0px 15px 0px
}
does not work either, so please don’t post about that.

Your code so far


<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<style>
  .red-text {
    color: red;
  }

  h2 {
    font-family: Lobster, monospace;
  }

  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: monospace;
  }

  .thick-green-border {
    border-color: green;
    border-width: 10px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-radius: 50%;
  }

  .smaller-image {
    width: 100px;
  }

  .silver-background {
    background-color: silver;

[type='checkbox'] {

You can try the one line style instead like this:

[type=‘checkbox’]{
margin: 10px 0px 15px 0px;
}

It works for me. :slight_smile:

So I kinda fixed it.
The error was the “}” above [type=‘checkbox’]

You can put “input” before your [type=‘checkbox’] but it is not necessary.

As mentioned before, I am very aware of the onelinersolution. Thank you very much.
