I have included the hexcode color in my border (see the screenshot). When I select "Save & Submit Code", I get an error message saying "Oops, try again. It looks like your border-color isn't #0000FF".

Did you make sure that your css is linked to your html?

That's quite weird. Cause there's nothing wrong with your code. I know this is gonna suck, but try starting that exercise over.

I have reset the code using the "Reset Code" button & tried it over again. I still got the same error message. I have also done:

* {
    border: 1px dashed;
    border-color: #0000ff;
}

This still didn't work. I got the same error message.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
        <title>Result</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <h3>The Box Model</h3>

</html>

* {
    border: 1px dashed #0000FF;
}

as you see my code is your code cause I copied and pasted it and it works fine.


#13

Refresh? Maybe it might help or exiting your browser and reopening it.


#14

That was it. I opened it in a different internet browser and it worked.

Strange. Thank you!


#15

This is happening to me as well. I'm using FireFox but will try Chrome and see what happens.

....yup, that works. Odd.
