IMG URLs for contact icons not working.

Hi! I am done with the code for this course but have no icons next to my contact information on the Contact Page. It looked like I had the same code as the instructor when I replayed the videos... The color of the ".contact-info" text is the same as the "url('../img/phone.png')" text in my code:

.contact-info li.phone a { background-image: url('../img/phone.png');

In the video it appeared to be a different color. Everything else is working.

Its not working because you haven't assigned the classes for the <li> right. If you check the <li> elements under <ul> with the class contact-info you will see you typed a dash instead of a equalsign when assigning the classes for <li>.

So to define a class to an element you type:

 <li class="hello"></li>

Great eye for detail! Works great now! Thanks!
