7.Margin


#1

i got an error but i don't know why?
error

Oops, try again. Did you remember to set the <div>'s margin to auto?

my code
index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
	    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
   		    <title>Result</title>
    </head>
    <body>
	    <div></div>
    </body>
</html>

stylesheet.css

* {
border: 1px dashed black;
}

div {
    height: 50px;
    width: 100px;
    border: 2px solid black;
    border-radius: 5px;
    background-color: #308014;
    margin : auto;
}

oh wow, SCT is being nasty again. You can't have a space between margin and :

Dude that space had ruined my life ... you are my saviour. @stetim94

What if you don't have a space between margin and the colon and are still getting that error? I have tried every fix known to mankind and 3 different browsers and I'm still getting this error. I don't remember what I did back in 2013 to get around this error!

EDIT: I went back and refreshed, the code was deleted. I re-entered it EXACTLY THE SAME AS BEFORE, and it went through just fine. Codecademy needs to iron out the bugs already!
