issue with ID selection on mac?

When I'm trying to select my ID to format with CSS, the '#' seems to format things in pink (like for hexadecimal color) and the challenge does not recognize that I am trying to select my 'copyright' ID. Is this a known issue?

I'm working on a macbook pro, if that matters

Thanks for taking a look Michael, that's exactly what it was. I guess I got too hung up on the color to look at what I was typing... haha

Can you post your code?

"#copyright { border-top: 8px solid #2A0200 }"

^copyright does not seem to be recognized as the ID. Any ideas?

Well I can't get this to format correctly in this box. Without quotes I get copyright in bold and larger with no pound sign, and with them everything falls on one line.

It is normal that the id selectors are formatted in pink; it looks the same for me. I was able to get this to work by using your code but with the correct color selected. The color for this exercise should be #2A0400 not #2A0200
