#3 One Selector Rule Them All problem


Hi there, I am trying to submit my lesson here but it always prompts the following:

"Oops, try again. Make sure that you use the universal selector * to give a border 1px wide.".

The funny thing is it seems like my code was written properly.
Here's the instruction:
Go ahead and use the universal selector to put a 1px dashed #3A5FCD border around every element on the page.

Here is my CSS code:

border: 1px dashed #3A5FCD;

Can anyone point out what the issue is with my code? Thanks in advance.



There's nothing wrong with your code (I tripled checked)

Maybe it has to do with something in your index.html part, just see if your code in that part matches this --->

<!DOCTYPE html>
		<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
		<h3>Boxes within boxes!</h3>
			<p>Paragraph One</p>
			<p>Paragraph Two</p>
			<p>Paragraph Three</p>


my code is exatly like yours and the results are correct and I still can't save and submit.
This has happened on a few occasions, I just think it's a bug in the program


Hi Christopher and @wlivesey,

Have you tried refreshing the page and switching browsers? I tried the CSS code given, and passed without a problem using Firefox.


I compared and it was identical. I also tried to copy paste your code into the .html page to make sure and still nothing.

It`s weird because the result page shows the blue borders correctly..

I`ll try switching browser like below.


Thank you Zystvan, I switched from Chrome to Firefox as you advised and it worked.

However, that means there is a bug on the Chrome side :frowning:

Well I`ll still check as solved, thank you !


I'm running this in Firefox and it still fails. I've even closed and re-opened Firefox. Here's the code:
* {
border: 1px dashed #3A5FCD;


Have the same problem, in Safari - dosent work
Add: ok, that was my fault )) I made extra gap between '1' and 'px' ))
