IN CSS Selectors Quickstart Challenge

QUESTION: Finally, in index.html, give the <div> element a class of main-content. In style.css, select that class and set the background color to ivory.

Bummer: Are you giving the <div> element a class of main-content?

I keep getting it wrong...

///in index.html

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Basic Selectors Challenge</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css"> </head> <body> <header> <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1> <img src="mtn-landscape.jpg" alt="foggy mountains"> </header>

  <div class=“main-content”>
  <h2>Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</h2>
  <p>Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.</p>
</div>
<footer id="main-footer">
  All rights reserved to the state of California.
</footer>

</body> </html>

///in styles.css

..main-content { background-color: ivory; }

///...these are my best guesses

You have fancy quotes in your html for the main-content class. These can come from using an iPad or phone. Change them to straight quotes and you will pass.

May be hard to see but:

<div class=“main-content”>

should be

<div class="main-content">
