How do I pass Task 2 of this challenge?

The challenge is under CSS Foundations - Selectors - Type, Class, and ID Selectors. It keeps failing me, and I don't understand why. It says to select the h1 on the page and change its background color to dark blue, so I type in:

h1 { background-color: darkblue; }

It doesn't seem to work. Is this a bug, or am I being stupid? Please help! :'(

Hi Sophie,

The challenge says to change the color to darkblue, not the background color.

h1 { color: darkblue; }

Ohhh. Thanks! I feel like a total dummy now, LOL.

Try to change background-color to background:

h1 { 
background: darkblue;
