Seems like you forgot to close your first css rule.

i did it it at last make sure you dont space between input and type

img[title="avatar"] { border-radius: 50%; } input[type='password'] { color:#ccc; }

Thank you! I guess I needed the single quotations, because taking them out or using double quotations didn't work.

Hi, John. I'm pretty sure you don't need the quotes when you are using selectors with square brackets. Try this:

 input[type=password] { 
    color: #ccc; 

Edit: Never mind me! Looks like Serge above is probably right! :)

must be getting old and forgetful, tks for help

input[type="password"] { color: #ccc; }
