What am I missing here?

The task is too select the ID "wrapper", set the max width to 940px and center is using margin.

I don't see the flaw in my CSS...

a { text-decoration: none; }

wrapper {

max-width: 940 px.; margin: 0 auto; }

"#" for ID "." for class

Spaces are allowed between property and value but not between value and measurement unit. In this case if adding dot before "wrapper" didn't a space between "940" and "px" might cause problem.

I can't seem to locate the quiz, but from your description it sounds like you're trying to style an element with the ID "wrapper".

#wrapper {
max-width: 940px;
margin: 0 auto;
