Getting Started with Compass: Task 3 of 5

The task is "To display the gradient in browsers that do not support CSS gradients, use a configuration variable to set support for SVG." I'm confused as to which variable to use. I tried a number of variables from "http://compass-style.org/reference/compass/css3/images/#const-use-legacy-gradient-syntax" and none of the ones I tried have worked.

sass/style.scss
/* Write your SCSS code below. */

// Imports

@import "compass/css3";

// Variables

$browsers-supporting-svg-but-not-gradients;

// Page Styles

body {
  @include background(linear-gradient(#3d69b5, #1a335e));
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>My Compass Project</title>
  <link href="stylesheets/style.css" rel="stylesheet">
</head>
<body>
  <div class="main-logo"></div>
</body>
</html>

I found the solution:

$experimental-support-for-svg: true;
