What's wrong with my CSS? Contact icons aren't appearing in the way they do in Nick's video -

The contact icons on my contact page aren't appearing on the left side of each contact option.

Here is a link to my code: https://w.trhou.se/v9l09lrsft

I am referring specifically to the Contact section of my main.css and contact.html.

Here is what I am referring to specifically:


      <h3>Contact Details</h3>
        <ul class="contact-info">
          <li class="phone"><a href="tel:444-5643">444-5643</a></li>
          <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:ram@example.com">ram@example.com</a></li>
          <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=metrocollab">@metrocollab</a></li>


.contact-info {
  display: block;
  min-height: 20px;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: 20px 20px;
  padding: 0 0 0 30px;
  margin: 0 0 10px;

Hi ramseydennis ,

Those styles were supposed to be applied to the links within the .contact-info list.

The selector should be .contact-info a

Great, thank you Jason.
