Changing the colour of the anchors in nav.

I have added the code as Nick does to color the anchor elements in nav and my elements remain green. Can someone help point out what I have done wrong? My code looks like this:

nav { background: #599a68; }

nav a, nav a:visited { color: #fff: }

Thanks! chris

Hi chris,

On the value for color you have a colon...

Just needs changing to a semi colon that's all...

Hope this helps!
