Still not seeing the contact icons in unordered list

I have checked my code half a dozen times, read all the comments here... unless I have tunnel vision or have gone blind I can't see any typographical errors. Help!

<ul class="contact-info">
          <li class="phone"><a href="tel:555-1234">555-1234</a></li>
          <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:me@example.com">Email me</a></li>
          <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=jasonweakley">Tweet me</a></li>
 </ul>
/****************************
PAGE: CONTACT
*****************************/

.contact-info {
  list-style: none;
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  font-size: 0.9em;
}

.contact-info a {
  display: block;
  min-height: 20px;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: 20px 20px;
  padding: 0 0 0 30px;
  margin: 0 0 10px;
}

.contact-info li:phone a {
  background-image: url('../img/phone.png');
}

.contact-info li:mail a {
  background-image: url('../img/mail.png');
}

.contact-info li:twitter a {
  background-image: url('../img/twitter.png');
}

Hi Jason,

You are using colons instead of dots in your css.

Try it like this:

.contact-info li.phone a {
  background-image: url('../img/phone.png');
}

.contact-info li.mail a {
  background-image: url('../img/mail.png');
}

.contact-info li.twitter a {
  background-image: url('../img/twitter.png');
}
