Quick Answer for "Bordering on insanity"

If anyone is having problems with the code on bordering on insanity I'll post the correct code. To get it correct though, do the following!

  1. Press ctrl (or cmd) + 0
  2. Paste this code in: td {

height: 50px;
border: 1px dashed blue;
}

table {

border: 1px solid black;
}

This is how I got the correct code. If you still can't pass, reply to this answer!

Yeah, that's exactly what I typed. Except it still says, 'Did you make sure to give your a 50px height?'.

you can probably post your code here for us to check or, refresh your browser page and try again.

td {
height: 50px;

border: 1px dashed blue;

}
table {
border: 1px solid black;
}
I still get the error message as well.

it gives me a caution sign and warns me that using border with height may cause problems.

and ctrl+0 has not fixed it.

The caution error is just for your understanding.

But, you should also check if the index.html has td and table tags in it.

If the problem still persists, you may have to reset the code, refresh the page (or try a new browser) and try again.

If nothing works, I guess only codecademy team can fix it.

thanks, other posts suggest chrome so am installing it now. I appreciate the swift response.

51c08908282ae3d83e0102f5_223235898 Ruben almost 5 years ago

installing chrome only now?
First requirement is to choose the right browser. Chrome is light weight and works fast. There are issues in it, but still chrome rocks :)

and well yeah, I love to respond swiftly :)

Excellent, been a firefox user for years. Its hard to give up on it. Chrome does seem to move faster. It has fixed the problem, Huzzah!

Is there any solution for IE-users (even if many people don't like us :D )? I'm always getting the error message "Did you set your border-width to 1px?".

I don't want to use chrome (even though I have it installed ...)
could be a pride thing, but If this is the only way to get it working...
I guess I'll have no choice.
