The property is color, not text-color.

I noticed that the challenges often tricked me into writing text-color into the exercises, too!

Have fun! :D

Yah! after that I tried this property and everything was ok. :) Thx for your response.

Yes. It was color. We should recommend to change the term into the question, because I'm sure several others will do the same mistake. #feedbacktoteamthreehouse :)
