CSS CSS Basics Basic Selectors Pseudo-classes

add a new pseudo-class selector that targets all links on hover. Add a color property and set the value to tomatoe.

Isn't this the correct code?

a:hover{ color: tomatoe;}

However, I keep getting an error message.

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
a:link {
  color: orange;}
a:visited{
  color: steelblue;}
a:hover{
color: tomatoe;}

Notice how the color highlighting is different on the last line? That's a hint about where the problem is.

In this case, it's the spelling of "tomato" (which should have no "e").

Oh my gosh!! Haha thank you so much!! I truly appreciate you. I just noticed that. The smelling was off. Coding is amazing. I notice that attention to detail is truly important when it comes to Coding. Thank you again.
