Hiya Stefan!

  • First off, You are very close. All ya have to do is remove "li", coz you have already selected id "gallery" of "<li>" tag. So just remove "li".
  • Second off, whenever you want to select any "id" in css, all ya have to do is put "#"(hash) infront on the id name. Whereas, you've to do the same for "class" as well except any class should start with "." (dot) .

So your code should be something like this:

     float: left; 

I hope it helped! (:

I spent 1 full hour trying to figure it out , thanks a lot : D !
