How to set up background-color in CSS


#1

I have no idea how to set up the background-color:yellow; in the stylesheet tab.
Please help.


#2

You would do something like this:

element {
    background-color: COLOR;
}

#3

I have it set up as this

p{
background-color:yellow;
}

I have also set it up the way that you have suggested, and that has not worked either. I continuously receive the following error: "Make sure you set your span tags to background-color:yellow!"

Using p sets the background of your paragraph here they asking to set background for span so replace p with span
