Why does the system not recognize my first color stop color in the last part of the challenge?

In the first 3 of 4 questions the system recognizes my first color but when I get to the 4th part it doesn't recognize.

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-header{
  background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, steelblue 0%, darkslateblue 90%); 
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>

        <div class="primary-content">
            <p class="intro">

Hi Clare,

You're super close! The question asks you to "add the value that sets the gradient direction from bottom to top." Currently you've set the gradient direction from top to bottom. Change "to bottom" to "to top" and you should be good to go.

Additionally, the first color stop automatically starts at 0% so you do not need to include this.
