CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Gradients

What am I missing that makes this problem incorrect? Thank you in advance!

after correctly applying the colors to the linear-gradient, after trying to pass the 4th part of the problem, it says that task 3 no longer works. I am unsure of what I am missing.

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */


.main-header {
  background-image: linear-gradient(to top steelblue, darkslateblue 90%);
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>

  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">

Hello Peter,

Everything looks good so far except it looks like you forgot a comma after indicating "to top." See below:

.main-header {
  background-image: linear-gradient(to top, steelblue, darkslateblue 90%);
}

Hope this helps!! Cheers and Happy Coding! :beers:

Thank you! I discovered that after 10 mins of clenching my fists! haha.

No problem! It's always the little things that seem to get you!!

For reference, I tend to use the MDN website A LOT when doing these challenges to check my work or if I just CANNOT remember something, it helps to pull that up and reference it!
