JavaScript CSS Selectors Quickstart CSS Selector Basics Attribute Selectors Challenge

Hi, My CSS is rejected. In the preview I can see it's working. So what do you expect in this case from me?

Hi, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong in the CSS Selectors Quickstart Challenge (Task 1)

This is the task: Create an attribute selector that targets an img element with a title attribute value of "avatar". Give the element a border radius of 50%.

This is my CSS: img[title = "avatar"] { border-radius: 50%; }

In the preview I can see that it's working. The picture is now round. But I'm getting an error. What do you expect in this case?

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

img[title = "avatar"] {
    border-radius: 50%;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Attribute Selectors</title>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div id="container">
        <form class="form-contact">
        <img src="avatar.png" title="avatar" alt="user">

          <label for="un">Username:</label> 
          <input type="text" id="un">

        <label for="pw">Password:</label>
            <input type="password" id="pw">

          <input type="submit" value="Sign up">
            <input type="reset" value="Reset">

Your code is super close, but not technically syntactically correct. In HTML and CSS, you're not allowed to put spaces around the equality operator (=) like you can (and should) in JavaScript. CSS tends to be a generally forgiving language, so most browsers know what you mean, but a less forgiving language would throw a syntax error. Once I remove the spaces, your code passes just fine. Great job!

Thanks for your reply. It worked :)
