Stage 6 - Style the Portfolio - browser not floating images per lesson instructions

code is saved in html and css files but images still display oversized. I'm wondering if this is a browser issue? Using Google Chrome version 39.0.2171.95

<ul id="gallery">
img {
  max-width; 100%;


#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%
  margin: 2.5%;

Hi Cynthia,

I've edited your code so it appears correct in your post. Could you post all your css and html please.

Here is a link to explain how to use Markdown to post your code How to post code

If you look at the bottom of the box when your typing a reply you will see Markdown Cheatsheet that will also explain how to post your code.

You have to make sure you have a bit of space under your last line of text in your post. Then you add three back ticks followed by html or css depending on the type of code your inserting.
Then straight after your last line of code you add another three back ticks.
Remember to leave at least a few lines between any text at the top or bottom of your code.

alt text

Hope this helps.
