[[HELP ME PLZ!!!]]

OK, I have tried everything and it will not take my code. I have proofread my code carefully (but not apparently) and am wondering if you could help me with what i did wrong, what i need to do and whatnot. Below it the code from the stylesheet.css file:

selector

p {
color:green <== look at this!!
}

So, the selector part appears in the box with the code but the rest does not. What did I do wrong? (it might be somthing with the brackets maybe.

Never mind...
So, do not put
selector
p
{color:green
}
this is a common mistake, instead put:
p
{color:green;
}
Hope that helps all of you with this same question! ;)

They are Next to the enter key, same key as The regular [brackets]
