JavaScript CSS Selectors Quickstart Pseudo-classes and Combinators Pseudo-classes Challenge

I think there is a problem with the treehouse error checking program here

I've set the visited pseudo-class to firebrick as instructed. The editor keeps insisting that I haven't.

a:link {color:darkorange;} a:visited {color:firebrick}

a:link {color:darkorange;}
a:visited {color:firebrick}

Hello Scott, You forgot to add a semicolon at the end of your color property declaration. Can you add it and try again? Like

a:link {
  color: darkorange;

a:visited {
  color: firebrick;

You are correct. Good catch.


I already tried it with and without a semi-colon multiple times with no success.

It changes the output in the preview correctly. But tells me it is incorrect when I click 'check work'.

That's what makes me think there was an error with the answer checking program.
