Rock your selectors, paragraph color error


I get this error message when I use the code provided below.
Oops, try again. Did you remember to set the color of the paragraphs outside divs to #00E5EE?

div p{

    border : dotted #3A5FCD;


To define color in the hex format you have to precede it with the hash symbol - #, for example:

color: #00E5EE;


Indeed, your code is missing "#" from the color of first and second paragraphs (p and div p);

But I'm encountering the same problem with "#".

If you did find the "bug" let me know as well what was! If I found it first I'll come back with the solution!


found it:
seemed that you have to "define" boarder-color.

p {
color: #00E5EE;

div p {
color: #CC0000;

  • {
    border: 1px solid;
    border-color: #3A5FCD;


It does not make sense to mix specific properties (border-color) and shorthand properties (border). Please do not encourage others to do this.

The only problem with the code posted by OP is lack of the # in color definitions.

p {
div p {
    color: #cc0000;
* {
    border : dotted #3A5FCD;


thanks for the correction, I'm novice into this and I found that it worked for this example, I didn't knew what else to do to pass this step, and as you wrote the "code" somehow it didn't worked for me, I was keep receiving the same error message!


Hi, I didn't use the value"color" in the border line







/*Add your CSS below!*/

p{ color:#00e5ee;}

div p{color:#cc0000;}

*{ border : #3a5fcd dashed 2px;}
