Help with question: In the myscript.js file, assign bgColor to the value of "blue" and the textColor to "#FF9933"

When I put the following code in for step two it says that task 1 is no longer valid.

document.getElementById('myDiv').bgColor = "blue"; document.getElementById('myDiv').textColor = "#FF9933";

I never made any changes to step 1. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Mikeal,

All they want you to do for task2 is assign the values given to the variables they've already set up for you.

var bgColor = "blue";
var textColor = "#FF9933";

You're welcome
