Ok, this is a pretty simple one (but often represents the sorts of problems I encounter from students). Here is the result I seek:

Desired Result

However, I don’t seem to be able to get this working. It seems to be mostly working, but there are some issues. Here is the file I am having problems with. [It will open in a new browser window/ tab]. What am I doing wrong? The first to properly identify the problem(s) and provide the proper solution will receive an animated gold star.

  1. Brad Donze says:

    HTML, line 14: “border” in HTML would be unrecognizable by the CSS as it is misspelled: “broder”.

  2. Mark DuBois says:

    Agreed. This is one error. Perhaps there is another also?
    Best always,

  3. Keith Turner says:

    li Property broder doesn’t exist : solid 2px red

  4. Keith Turner says:

    The properties that can be set, are (in order): border-width, border-style, and border-color. Should be “border: 2px solid red”

  5. Mark DuBois says:

    Yes, this error has been identified. Perhaps there is more than one error?
    Best always,
    Mark

  6. Mark DuBois says:

    Agreed. There still might be another error. Try fixing the code with all the changes in the comments and something will still not display as desired. What else is wrong?
    Best always,

  7. Keith Turner says:

    In addition to the order of the border: syntax, target needs added as shown below to open the link in a new window.

    a href=”index.html” target=_blank

    Hint – I am focused just on the CSS. There remains one problem no one has yet identified. Include all the changes suggested and you will still not see the same as what I desire.

    body {
    font:arial;
    }

    should be

    body {
    font-family:arial;
    }

    This was one part of a number of errors. I am awarding “gold stars” to all who participated as there were multiple errors but no one specifically identified all of them in one comment.
