How can i fix icons that doesn't show on browser?

Im trying to get the small icons of twitter, mail, and phone into my background in my website but for some reason they don't show on the browser, i've already checked that these files are in the correct folder, and triple checked my css code but they just dont show up these is how i wrote it.

.contact-info li.phone a {

background-image:url('../img/phone.png');

}

.contact-info li.mail a {

background-image:url('../img/mail.png');

}

.contact-info li.twitter a {

background-image:url('../img/twitter.png');

}

I've also cheched that the class .contact-info in the html file is written well and it is exactly in the ul as the video shows, so im pretty confused, i also tried different browsers and my result is the same. thanks for the help!

Hi Jose, I saw what you've done wrong there. At the heading level 3 Contact Details, first you write the class with missing one s at the first <li> and second your class name shouldn't be capitalized. It should be "phone", "mail", and "twitter".

It should be like this:

<h3>Contact Details</h3>
<ul class="contact-info">
          <li class="phone"><a href="tel:555-6425">555-6425</a></li>
          <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:pepesrzra@gmail.com">pepesrzra@gmail.com</a></li>
          <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/pepe_srz">@pepe_srz</a></li>
</ul>
