Why is my code not working?

The body is coded white but it shows orange when previewed. Body is at the bottom of the page and under the selector #wrapper which is way above the body code is given the styling of background-color: orange.

body { background-color: #fff; color: #999; }

Hi Marguerite, would you post a snapshot of your Workspace? That way we might be better able to help figure out why the CSS isn't working like it should be.
