Is it because you made contact info an id(#) but needs to be a class (.) ?

.contact-info li {

} I am new as well and am just trying to help as part of my track. So my answer is more of an idea but hope it helps.

ok i just removed the ul:

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

Great work Davide! Here's why it wouldn't work with the ul on there:

It wouldn't accept it because there were other lines in your code keeping the task from passing.

Your issue was actually that you selected too much. When it asked that you select the unordered list with the class contact-info, it didn't need you to select *.contact-info ul{}* . There actually is no such thing in this particular problem, since the very the thing the class is connected to is the unordered list in question.

<ul class="contact-info">

It needed you to just select the .contact-info class since you didn't need to be redundant. Does that make sense?

Here's what it should look like:

either

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

or

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

or this works too, I would just be more inclined to use the former in case I have multiple ul(s) in a document.

ul {
  font-size: 0.9em;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

I hope this helps!! :-)
