.main-header { box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa, inset 0 0 60px 5px #aaa; } This doesn't work...

This comes from CSS Basics: Designing with The Latest Features, 4 of 4 in the code challenge.
The question asks:

"Let's give .main-header an inner-shadow with a second set of box-shadow values. Set the new shadow's horizontal and vertical offsets to 0, the blur radius to 60px, the spread radius to 5px, and the color to firebrick. Don't forget to include the keyword value that creates an inner box shadow."

This makes no sense to me. Is it supposed to be a new class with the same name (.main-header)?

Hello Daniel,

Try this

.main-header { box-shadow: 0 0 60px 5px firebrick; }

Thanks Andres--don't recall hearing that is prohibited to have 'px' after zero.
