What's wrong the syntax?

It seems that the syntax is correct at the selector and declaration level, yet there's something that isn't right.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

img [title="avatar"] {
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Nunito:400,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="base.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div id="container">
        <form class="form-contact">
        <img src="avatar.png" title="avatar" alt="">

          <label for="un">Username:</label> 
          <input type="text" id="un">

        <label for="pw">Password:</label>
        <input type="password" id="pw">

          <input type="submit" value="Sign up">

Hi there, Alexandra Velez ! You are super close here. As you've noted, the syntax is not quite correct. Some parts of CSS aren't particular about whitespace. But this is one place where it is. Notably, the selector doesn't like whitespace where it shouldn't be. This isn't particular to Treehouse. This is anywhere CSS is used :smiley:

You may not have a space between img and [title="avatar"]. They need to be squished together like img[title="avatar"]. Then everything works as expected!

Hope this helps :sparkles:
