How come my images won't show up as a background picture? I am using workspace and I uploaded them!

I uploaded the image on workspace and my code is:

body { background-image: url ("Home.jpg") color: #878787; margin: 0; }

It doesn't show up! It is not in any folder or anything. Please help!

  1. You never closed your background-image property with a semi-colon;

  2. Is the path to your image correct? With what you have now, the image should be in the same folder as your css file.
