CSS The Selectors Solution

Create hover and visited styles for all links inside 'main': Doesn't the order matter?

The solution in the video shows the rule for hover followed by visited, but that doesn't seem to work. The order matters--it should be visited followed by hover.

It does works! In the excercise both pseudoclasses are refered to DIFFERENT links, 'hover' for navigation links and 'visited' for the links within de "main" section. The order matter when both pseudoclasses are applied to the same selector.

Yes, however the instructor doesn't adhere to that order in the video so the style sheet, as he has written it, is incorrect. I just wanted to point that out in case someone else gets confused and also bring it attention to staff that the video has an obvious error.
