Can some one help me understand this part about padding?

Hey everyone,

I was follow Guil in regards to padding in the nav bar. Everything was following along fine until then and that part never changed when I refreshed the browser. Any ideas on what I'm missing.

.name a,
.main-nav a; {
  padding: 10px 15px;
  display: block;
}

Question updated with code formatting. Check out the Markdown Cheatsheet for syntax examples.

Remove the semicolon after .main-nav a. This will cause a syntax error and you won't see the desired results.

Thanks so much Rich! I don't know how I didn't see that.

You're welcome! It can be hard to see when you've been staring at it for too long!
