Why is my css not working?

I am setting the background-size to 20px but it tells me I am not doing it, what's happening?

  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;
}

  font-weight: normal;
}

In the class, "contact-info", you are missing the semi-colon for the list-style property.

I am going to take a shot in the dark and say that you have not declared a background image in the contact-info class and therefore there is no background size it can set.

Yeah, I think Brandon's got it.

The css property 'background' is shorthand for which you only include the one value 'no-repeat'

The shorthand might need to include other values

background: #colour url() repeat position;

or you might need to use a single image property

background-image: url();
