CSS CSS Basics (2014) Basic Selectors Descendant Selectors

CSS Help?

I am going through the Front End Web Development course and am currently on CSS Basics

I am on one of the Challenge Tasks, And am having some problems with descendant selectors.

It keeps saying "Bummer! Make sure you're using the 'color' property with the value 'slategrey'

I did that perfectly yet it is still saying that.

'''css .header span { font-size: 26px; }

.main-content p { font-weight: bold; }

.footer p { color: slategrey; }

I've looked at the challenge and I've found your problem

Your trying to target an element that has a class of .footer. But that's not what it's looking for.

footer p {
  color: slategray;

You're looking for a paragraph that's a child of a footer element.

As for the slategrey value I haven't tested for that but my attempt passed with the value of slategray rather than slategrey.

This should work for you :)

Ohhhhhh, that's it working now, thank you very much man.
