CSS CSS Selectors Selectors - Beyond the Basics Attribute Selectors Challenge

I tried selectors other than img[target="avatar"] { border-radius: 50%; } But can't get anything to work

Out of all the selectors covered so far...

input[type="email"] { background: yellow; }

[class] { border: solid 1px #ccc; }

input[type="submit"] { background-color: green; }

a[target="_blank"] { color: tomato; }

The last one seems the most applicable, but it doesn't work. :-/

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

img[target="avatar"] {
  border-radius: 50%;
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Nunito:400,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="base.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div id="container">
        <form class="form-contact">
        <img src="avatar.png" title="avatar" alt="">

          <label for="un">Username:</label> 
          <input type="text" id="un">

        <label for="pw">Password:</label>
        <input type="password" id="pw">

          <input type="submit" value="Sign up">

Oh, and the challenge is...

"Create an attribute selector that targets img elements with a title value of "avatar". Give those elements a border radius of 50%."

You probably want to use src instead of target. Give that a shot.

Doesn't work :-/

Oh! I see why now, and I guess I should have written an explanation of how I arrived at that conclusion.

In the img tag it has a src attribute with the value of "avatar.png". img[...] is an attribute selector, so we select the src attribute and provide that value which is "avatar.png".

This should work: img[src="avatar.png"].

And sorry for spamming you but with the same logic:

img[title="avatar"] should work too.

img[title="avatar"] worked! The other one didn't though. Thank you!
