CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Text Shadows and Box Shadows

where does the comma need to go when giving two sets of box shadow values

I'm trying to figure out what I am doing wrong

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
  text-shadow: 0px 0px 5px #be7b31
.title {
  text-shadow: 1px 3px 0px #e59740;
  box-shadow: 0px 2px 15px #aaa,
  inset 0px 0px 60px 5px firebrick
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>

        <div class="primary-content">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

Hi tiara breed,

Task 4 of this challenge is a bit annoying as you need to write very specific CSS in order for it to work, the problem is the 0px values which should just be 0.

  box-shadow: 0 2px 15px #aaa, inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick

Happy coding!

There is no comma for the inset according to MDN. You are missing several semicolons also.

You are missing several semicolons also.

In CSS we don't actually have to use the semi-colon if it's either the last or only property in our selector.

There is no comma for the inset according to MDN.

I recommend you have another look at the examples on the MDN link, the last one shows a comma separated box-shadow.
