Background color


#1

Hey, i am not sure what's wrong with my code. Codecademy says this:Oops, try again. Make sure you set the body's background-color to brown. Can anybody help me please?

	<body style=background-color:brown>
		<h3>Favorite Football Teams</h3>

				<li>Barcelona FC</li>

@aannnna,

You should use

style="background-color:brown"

#3

You should have your style like this <body style="background-color:brown">


#4

@aannnna, you are forgetting one small but important thing. Remember that quotation marks are important when styling inside of tags. I will leave the rest to you for you to figure out where to put them.

I think this is broken because the background is red


Replace this line with your code.


#6

Is this broken? I clearly typed brown.

@memalley
Try to use
style="background-color: brown;"
where you use the semi-colon....

Then do a refresh Browser

Therefor it is of an advantage to know that you have 2 reset facilities:

One is the use of the F5-key which does a refresh Browser

and

Two, select&copy your code
Then use the Reset Code button of the course-window,
then paste your code back in.
