Style your portfolio - <ul id="gallery"> my selector does not select

Nick is explaining in video at the beginning bz assigning id="gallery" to <ul> he will start styling the images so they fit desktop type website as well. however as soon as the list dots are supposed to disappear mine remain. That means that my selector does not select it for some reason.

And, if you could assist me how do I post my CSS here so you can see it that would be helpful...

What are you using for your rule in the css? Should be something like:

#gallery {
  list-style: none;
}

Nope, it is not just the list-style. This whole #gallery selector does not work. I checked the id for the <ul> and it should be the same. However I am unable to locate where is the "catch" since no rule related to that ID is affecting it (background should be black etc..) Providing mine HTML from the Course lesson

so the background for your list items is not turning black either?
