Why does it keep saying my font-size doesn't equal 0.9em when it clearly does? This a bug?

I feel like my code is right. I've selected the unordered list with the "contact-info" class and changed the font size to 0.9em. Every time I try to move on it says it's incorrect. What i the world am I doing wrong?

css/main.css
.contact-info ul {
  font-size: 0.9em;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}



a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

nav ul {
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0 10px;
  padding: 0;
}

nav li {
  display: inline-block;
}

nav a {
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px;
}

.profile-photo {
  display: block;
  margin: 0 auto 30px;
      max-width: 150px;
  border-radius: 100%;
}

Because you're selecting the ul inside a container with .contact-info class, you should select the ul with class .contact-info

The challenges are sometimes very specific in what they are looking for. In this case, it only wants you to use .contact-info, not .contact-info ul. So, this works:

.contact-info {
  font-size: 0.9em;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

I ended up using ul.contact-info

Just wanted to follow up to my answer, as I realized I didn't mention something important. When you use .contact-info ul, it is a descendant selector. So, you would be styling any ul that is inside another element with the class contact-info.

While my answer of just using the class works, I would say your use of ul.contact-info is the best solution for this question.
