Finally, create a new rule that removes the underline from all unvisited links on the page.

How do I do this?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>
    <div class="primary-content t-border">
      <p class="intro">
        Lake Tahoe is one of the most <span>breathtaking attractions</span> located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
      </p>
      <a href="#more">Find out more</a>
    </div>
    <footer class="main-footer">
      <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
      <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>
style.css

When you make an anchor element, the browser automatically applies an underline styling to let users know that it is a hyperlink.

That style looks like this

a {
text-decoration: underline
}

But you can use it with any element.

What you need to do is find the property of text-decoration that removes the underline styling. Then apply it to unvisited links using the appropriate pseudo selector. a::unvisited

My answer was

a:link { text-decoration: none; }

and was wrong?

I got it to work with

a:link {
  text-decoration: none;
}

Try it at the very bottom of your code if you haven't already :)

I'm not sure what else to suggest, I'm afraid.

.intro {
  font-size: 1.25em;
  line-height: 1.6;
}

.intro span {
   font-weight: bold;
   font-style: italic;
}

a:link {
  text-decoration: none;
}

Here's the complete code. Remember about the intro class in task 1. Try again if it still doesn't work for you. :)

I just did the challenge myself. I can confirm that a:link {text-decoration: none;} works.
