Cant change nav element in css.

I should "select the unordered list nested inside the nav element. Remove the margins on the top and bottom. Set the margins on the left and right to 10px." But in the actual css code is no nav element. So I added one and used the margin property. Like this:

nav li { margin: 0, 10px: }

But it does not work.

Can anybody tell me what to do?

Thanks, Sven

You have to select -> "nav ul" .

"li" are list items. You have to style the whole list.

And there is no comma in the declaration.

nav ul { margin: 0 10px: }

Hey you have to select the unorderlist and not the list items, according to what you wrote as question :

nav ul {


Thanks friends, so clear.
