Hi Camille,

Maybe it was a temporary problem with the challenge. Can you refresh the challenge and try again?

Your css is correct and it passed for me a moment ago when I tried it.

Hi Jason!

I'm not sure what's happening. I keep getting a communication problem error.

Glad to know it's not the code, though! :)

Sorry you're having that trouble. You could try closing out the communication error popup and checking work again.

I would contact support if the problem is persisting for you.
