When making the graph everything shoes up but the colors. Can you tell why?

Hi, '#22' is not a valid color, there is an unnecessary space between '1px' and you are missing a closing semicolon

Should look something like:

#wrapper {  
     font-family: sans-serif;
     width: 80%;
     margin: 0 auto;    
 }

.graph {
    padding: 0;
    width: 50%;
    float: left;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #888;
 }

 .graph li {
    position: relative;
    list-style: none;
    border-top: 1px solid #888; //removed space between 1px
    clear: both;
  }

.fruit {
    display: block;
    padding: 1em;
    position: relative;
    color: #222; // changed to #222
    background: #66EE99; // added closing ;
    font-weight: bold;
    float: left;
 }

Hope this helps! :)
