Workspaces not working correctly? :not() pseudo class lesson

Iโ€™m not sure if this is a bug or not, but I have tried re-opening my browsers, restarting my mac, and clearing my browser cookies/cache.

This started in the :not() -Negation Pseudo Class lesson in the CSS Advanced Selectors class. I would put in the code and refresh the page, but nothing happens. No borders, or anything.

I cant put up screenshots here, but I'll email the developers if a solution isn't posted here. I don't think it's a code problem, but more of a problem on my side.

Here's the first bit of code where I encounter the issue:

div:not([#col-a]) { border: solid 1px red; }

There is no border at all. Everything else works correctly, but no border. I've also tried the next few steps, but nothing changes in the browser. It's strange.

Oh, god, I just realized, minutes after posting this question, that I have been typing in this:

not([])

The whole time.

Please ignore.
