Problem with challenge task 2.

So for task 2 I've got to task 2 and I can't progress. It wants me to check the max-width value, but I have it exactly as they want it (940px). Any idea's what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

The question itself is, Select the ID wrapper, set it to a max width of 940 pixels, and then center it on the page using the margin property.

a { text-decoration: none; } wrapper# { max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; }

The id selector (#) is in the wrong place: it should be #wrapper.

That was it, thanks for that. The error message had me looking at the wrong section of my code, I'll have to bear that in mind in future.
