Hi,

I have written:

.contact-info ul { font-size: 0.9em; }

I cannot get past the first question and unsure where I am going wrong. Can anyone help?

Thanks

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;

Hey Laurence,

Try placing ul before the class .contact-info

It doesn't work either way. This is certainly a bug. Has anyone figured out how to trick it into letting us pass this objective?

Sorry I should have been more clear the code below specifically targets all element with the same class therefore all ul within the website with the class contact-info.

ul.contact-info{} /**passes**/

this has no relationship

ul .contact-info{}/**does not pass**/

Similarly no relationship

.contact-info ul {
  font-size: 0.9em;/**does not pass**/
}

also this is grouping selectors

h1, p, a{}

and this is targeting

h1 p a{}

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

Your issue is 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, 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 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!!
