I think it is the spaces, if you remove the space between background-image and the (:), the space between top and (,), and the space between steelblue and (,).

It should look like the following after I remove the spaces.

.main-header {

background-image: linear-gradient(to top, steelblue, darkslateblue 90%);


ok it was a spaces problem , even if css lint says my version it's right too.

Thank you Hanna

try adding a coma after darkslateblue?

Dear Chanel , if i put a ',' after darkslateblue it doesn't recognize the whole line . Thank you for your replay :-)
