"You don't seem to have an <option> element where the value attribute is set to "red"." how do you figure that?

I've been having weird issues related to quizzes on Treehouse, I tried switching from Vivaldi to Firefox in safe mode as support suggested, but it seems I might still be having issues. Unless this is indeed some sort of issue on my end.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color">
        <option value-"red">Red</option>
        <option value-"yellow">Yellow</option>
        <option value-"purple">Purple</option>
        <option value-"blue">Blue</option>
        <option value-"green">Green</option>
                <option value-"orange">Orange</option>
      </select>
    </form>

  </body>
</html>

hey Kyle Petran

You were almost correct it is a symbol error. Its <option value="blue">Blue</option> You switched the = with -.

I don't know how I didn't notice this, I guess that's the beauty of having another set of eyes look things over, thanks.
