CSS

Attribute Selector Task 1/4

I don't understand why my answer is wrong for the question: "Create an attribute selector that will target "< a >" elements with a title attribute. Add a color property with the value 'darkred'."

My answer:

a|title="More!"| {
  color: darkred;
}

Instead of pipes, you want to use brackets:

a[title="More!"]
{
color: darkred;
}

CSS selectors are always in brackets, not pipes. :) Probably just a visual error, sometimes things are hard to see in the videos. :)

Merry Christmas! ~Mike

Thanks, Mike!
