CSS How to Make a Website Customizing Colors and Fonts Write Hexadecimal Colors

How do I write this correctly to "style elements inside the nav.."

This is really not explained clearly.

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}
nav a.selected, nav a:hover {
  color: #fff;
}


p {
  background-color; #fff;
  color: #000;
}

They are looking for you to specify the selector that would select the nav element. CSS selectors are the part that go before the curly braces, {}. SO, (Without blatantly giving the answer) if I wanted all of the images on the page, I would use:

img {
}

The question may further ask you to style the nav element in a particular way... That would go inside the curly braces.

Ok, but none of it works. Why is that?

::Sigh:: I'm apparently bad at being subtle...

I don't see a

nav {}

declaration anywhere in your code.
