Hi Maxym, You have to add 'max-width', not 'width' for images. The percentage-size will be that of the container that holds the image. The 'container' is the parent element of the image. The 'parent element' would usually be specified on the html page as a 'div' element, such as 'body, footer'. The ID selector #gallery is part of a css rule that declares properties for lists, captions, navigation links, plus its borders, margins and padding.

Hoping this helps you. Jane
