CSS How to Make a Website Customizing Colors and Fonts Write Hexadecimal Colors

Setting color of anchor elements

Instructions say: Set the color of anchor elements inside the nav element to white using a hexideci. value.

Error/bummer message reads: Make sure that you've styled links (a) elements inside the nav to be white with a hexideci. value.

The following CSS code looks correct:

a { text-decoration: none; }

wrapper {

max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; }

header { background: #6ab47b; border-color: #599a68; }

h1, h2 { color: #fff; }

nav { color: #fff; }

p, {color: #000000; }

a: link {color: #ffffff }

logo {

text-align: center; margin: 0; }

I have tried it without ' link ' as well and nothing seems correct??

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

header {
  background: #6ab47b;
  border-color: #599a68;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav {
  color: #fff;
}

p, {color: #000000; 
}

a:link {color:  #ffffff
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

In order to set the color of the a inside the nav, you have to target it by using nav a then follow by the color. Like this

 nav a {
     color:#fff;
   }

Thanks I'll try that.
