Stuck!

The correction is saying to make sure the color is steelblue. The color is definitely steelblue. Any advice? Thank you!

  1. Task 4 says to set the second color stop's position to 90%; you have set the first color stop's position to 90% instead.
  2. It also says to set the gradient direction from bottom to top; you have set it from top to bottom.
