Can't see what the issue is with my text-align value?

The code challenge asks me to center the logo using text-align and it appears I have everything correct but it's asking me to check my value. This is what I have:

.logo{ text-align: center; }

Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? Thanks!

Hi Tracy,

The code is nearly correct, but the problem is you have used a '.' instead of a hashtag in the selector. When selecting an ID you must use a hashtag, however when selecting a CLASS you must use a '.',

So your code should look like this :

' #logo{ text-align: center; } '

( Without the commas! )

Hope this helps,

Make sure you're using the text-align:center; on the container the image sits in and not the image itself. Haven't done that lesson yet so not sure if that class is for the image or the div that image sits inside. GL!
