Give the paragraph a border that is 4px wide, solid and red. What am I missing?

styles.css didn't like the border-color red input

<!doctype html>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">

    <p class="main-pg">My amazing website</p>}

.main-pg {

  border. 4px;
  border-color. solid red;

1 Answer

You need to use a colon instead of a period. You can also include all properties on a single line like this:

border: 4px solid red;
