Finishing the CSS

Hi, I can't seem to complete this exercise. The question asks me to add a top border, and border color to an id element. My CSS that I've added to the the css file on the exercise is:


border-top: 8px; border-color: #2A0400; }

Could you please explain where I'm going wrong?

Hey mate!

Two things I can think of... Are you using the "#" before copyright?

Also, and probably what's causing it to not advance is that the "border-top" should also include "solid" after the 8px. For example...

    #copyright {
      border-top: 8px solid;
      border-color: #2A0400;

Hope that helps!
