Why cant this work with dreamweaver? this editor is TERRIBLE. hex for green is 00FF00

I tried just green and I also tried a hex number and nothing. I normally do external style sheets.

You should only need to write the word green. Hex is unnecessary and will probably not pass the challenge.

Please provide your code so we can see what you are doing wrong. The Markdown Cheatsheet explains how to post code to the forum.

That's the solution to the challenge. You can try using sublimetext or another text editor like notepad ++. Programming is mostly script. You can use WYSIWYG to start out to understand what each different script does.
