another problem with 'begins with'

None of the prescribed code seems to be working for me on this video.

Below is the code given to select anchor items that begin with http://

a[href^="http://"] { color: #52bab3; text-decoration: none; }

But it doesn't change anything. Anyone know why?

There's probably more to it than just this one CSS rule.

You can use the snapshot function in the workspace and provide the link to share your whole project at once.

Thanks for the reply. Mysteriously it started to work after I added some more code to add more effects. So, the original code WAS correct but just didn't fancy working! Who knows.
