Attribute selector

a [target="_title"]
          {
            color:darkred; }

I'm having trouble with this attribute selector challenge. The objective is to change the color of all <a> tags that have titles to dark red. I have tried everything and am out of ideas. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Thanks Kevin, I did manage to solve it finally. I think it turned out to be the code that you wrote minus the "a". Thank you for the reply though!

Hey Jason,

I'm not sure on this, but I think you can just target the attribute itself by only including the attribute's name.

Like this:

a[title] {
color: darkred;
}

That will select any <a> element with a title attribute, that's overly specific, as the task requests any element that has a title attribute.
