hello, input[type="text"]:focus{} is not working?

:information_source: FYI: This symbol :point_right: # :point_left: is a "hash" or "pound". It is not a "hashtag".

The term "hashtag" is not used in programming.
It is a term used only with certain social media sites for an identifier that begins with a "#".

There's nothing obviously wrong with the CSS, perhaps the problem is caused by something else.

To share the entire environment, make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Thank you for the clarification about the hash symbol! Here's my snapshot https://w.trhou.se/tgr1u7ox9m

On line 59 of selectors.css there is this sentence: " Give the text field a blue border upon focus.".

But this line is not enclosed in comment symbols. So it is considered part of the selector for the next rule, which of course invalidates it.

Mark the comment appropriately to fix the issue.
