Contact Details icons in the wrong place, error in the CSS. How do I correct it?

Here's my CSS code below from 'how to make a website' module that I followed myself. On the Contact page, the icons for phone, mail and twitter are in the wrong place, shifted to the left. How do I correct this?


.contact-info {
  list-style: none;
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  font-size: 0.9em;

.contact-info a {
  display: block;
  min-height: 20px;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: 20px 20px;
  padding: 0 0 0 30px;
  margin: 0 0 10px;

.contact-info li.phone a {
  background-image: url('../img/phone.png');

.contact-info li.mail a {
  background-image: url('../img/mail.png');

.contact-info li.twitter a {
  background-image: url('../img/twitter.png');

Hi Graeme Young if a background-position is not defined in CSS, the default is used, 0,0 or left/top Did you want the icons to display elsewhere?
