Bordering on Insanity - Still a nice table, but same error message

I've done just about everything people have suggested in the forum. First, I triple checked all my code. Then I forced my browser to do a complete, "hard" refresh and then rebooted my compter. Lastly, I cleared out the cache in my Internet Explorer browser. I know this happened because all my temporary files and saved website passwords were wiped out.

So unless there is a fairly simple solution to this problem (I am not going to reconfigure my computer that I use for work products just to finish Section 4) this course is history. I did enjoy working the HTML and CSS portions of the course that I was able to finish. Thank you for that.

Hi Robert, the code works because when I go to my own lesson it validates.
If you need assistance please post your code, post the exact error you are getting and see if someone can spot what is wrong with it. In the world of coding no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. We learn from our mistakes, I make them every single day. Show us your code and lets go from there. Agree?

Thank you everyone, especially Tony de Araujo, for your suggestions. As a last move, I have installed "Firefox 20.0.1" as a browser for this course and this has solved my problem. On the left side of my Stylesheet.css code, the Firefox web development option placed two little symbol thingies that when moused gave suggestions for correction of the code. That did the trick for this exercise. Let's see if I can continue on.

But thank you again.

this does not work properly. :(
td{ height: 50px; border: 1px dashed blue;} table{ border: 1px solid black;}.
I have tried everything to make this work. At least the system lets you go forward without completing it. It is a shame that it will not show 100% though. this is really a fun excersize.

Same here, it doesn't work for me, no matter what I try. Just for reference, here's a screenshot of the CSS:

As you know, your code looks good. If you haven't tried passing with another browser, try it. Or reset cache memory and try again.

Cheers for that. I'll try another browser.... currently using firefox...
Perhaps Safari will do the trick?

I'm sorry other users are having trouble with this exercise. Changing my browse to Firefox die the trick for my.

I have since finished the "Beginning Web Development (html and CSS) course and have moved onto "Python," which I find very interesting.
