Make sure you check your spacing and your syntax. As Adam mentioned, you need to add a semi-colon after your property declaration. Additionally, you need to remove the space between input and [type="password"].

You have:

/* notice the space between the tag selector and the attribute selector - remove this */
input [type="password"] {
  /* notice there is no semi-colon after '#ccc' - add one */

You need:

input[type="password"] {


ALL day, no working, please Help.... Next, create a new attribute selector that targets input elements with a type value of password. Then, set the color to #ccc.

Bummer. ! Make sure you're setting the color to '#ccc'.

input[type="password"] { color:#ccc; } input[type="password"] { color: #ccc; }
