Text-decoration to none


When trying to do this exercise the 'text-decoration: none;' doesn't seem to work. When trying to submit the code I get the following message:

"Oops, try again. Did you remember to set your link's text-decoration to none;?"

The code looks perfectly fine to me, I even used a couple online compilers to check for syntax errors. But I didn't find any.
I've had this issue before, in 7.CSS: An Overview: 26/26, that time I had fogotten a closing bracket.

I really don't know what's going wrong here, does andybody have an idea?

The CSS:

img {
	display: block;
	height: 100px;
	width: 300px;
	margin: auto;

p {
	text-align: center;
	font-family: Garamond, serif;
	font-size: 18px;

/*Start adding your CSS below!*/

div {
    height: 50px;
    width: 120px;
    border-color: #6495ED;
    background-color: #BCD2EE;
    border-width: 2px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-radius: 5px;
    margin: auto;
    text-align: center;

span {
    text-decoration: none;
    color: white;
    font-family: Arial Black;


you set your span's text-decoration to none, that is not your link. I will leave it to you, to come up with the correct css selector


Thanks, it works now. But why didn't it work when targeting the span?
Because the span is inside the link. I shouldn't be the answer to the exercise but it should have worked in the editor right?


Because span is just an inline-element which target the word inside the link? it doesn't target the actual link


how do you target the link???


by using the correct css selector.

I will give you one more hint, here is a paragraph html element:

<p>i am a paragraph</p>

now, if i want to target the paragraph in css:

p {
  property: value;

now, here is a html link element:


now, you think what the correct css selector is. If you need any further help, post your code
