12. Background Color


#1

I keep getting an error message saying I didn't change the background to brown but I did.
See:

   <!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title>Sexy background color!</title>
</head>
<body               style=background-color:brown>
	<h3>Favorite Football Teams</h3>
		<ol style=background-color:yellow>
			<li>The Hawthorn Football Club</li>	
			<li>San Franscisco 49ers</li>
			<li>Barcelona FC</li>
		</ol>			
</body>

You will have to encapsulate the style-property in a pair of double-quotes-" "
like:

style="background-color:brown"
and
style="background-color:yellow"

I have a similar issue saying "Oops, try again. Make sure you set the body's background-color to brown." Can you please help? Thank you.
Here's my code:

Favorite Football Teams


  1. The Hawthorn Football Club

  2. San Franscisco 49ers

  3. Barcelona FC

Sorry, here is the specific image of the code.

@chiprunner58409,

Try completing the opening-body-Tag and the opening-ol-Tag
like

 <body style="background-color:brown">

and

 <ol style="background-color:yellow">
