This code passes tasks 1 and 2 as is (you quoted part of the task 2 instructions).

The work for task 3 still needs to be done to finish the challenge.

UPDATE: I notice that some changes were made to "index.html". For this challenge, all work should be done in "style.css". Try again with the HTML file left as it was provided and see if that helps.

Thanks Steven. For some reason, the step (task 2) doesn't pass when I try it here. I can't even go to task 3.

Strange, it passes for me when I paste it directly into the challenge.

Thanks for your help. It worked for me.
