Getting "Did you set your <td> border width to 1px? Check all your opening and closing tags!"

My code :

/*Add your CSS below!*/
td{
    height : 50px;
    border :1px dashed blue; 
    }

table{
    border :1px solid black;
}

Not able to figure out my mistake :( & CSS is linked in HTML page.

EDIT : Found the solution. Just set the browser zoom level to 100% & it worked :P

In my browser (Chrome on Mac OS X) your code validates as correct. This might be a browser-specific problem. Try Chrome or Firefox or Safari if you have it.

this worked :

border:1px dashed blue;

just removed a whitespace. Even I am using OS X & Chrome. Tried FF & Safari also.

I solved the issue by simply changing browser. Codecademy works better on Chrome compared to IE.

change browser zoom to 100% (default) (ctrl-0, cmd-0)

I have no idea what the underlying problem is in this exercise, but it should have been resolved a long, long time ago. If it's browser-specific, it's the first browser-specific difficulty I've encountered in the 250+ exercises I've completed at Codecademy. I hope it's fixed so I can pass the exercise, but for now I'm moving on.

Did you try hitting command+0 (mac) or control+0 (pc) to reset your browser's zoom? I did that, and it worked after

the only solution i can think of is to use a USB chip for a backup to your other folders, then go to the clean up, if you erase the downloaded history, the computer seems to run a little better, as it may get gunked up from other programs you have previously viewed.

my browser is set to 100% and it's still "opps try again". I tried ctrl+0 and it sets the browser to 125%. ughh this is frustrating. does anyone have any suggestions?

So I am currently deployed and I cannot get this exercise to work. I have tried switching around all of the data, I've changed the zoom to 100% and many other variations and also tried physically adding "width: 50px;" and nothing changes. It is very hard for me to download things since the internet I use is terribly slow so getting another browser is near impossible. Is there any real solution to fix this exercise so that it works seamless with IE?

the com i'm using is also very slow, i downloaded fire fox and even though it took all day, it was worth it. have you tried getting a usb chip and downloading all your computer files onto the usb chip. then clean out your pc with c cleaner, dumping the cache all that fun stuff. time consuming, but worth it. hope this helps.

i can see that on height:50 px and border: 1px. have you tried putting a space between your : and your answer? oh i see it! you didn't put a semicolon at the end of 50px. try spacing everything after your : and make sure to put your ; after your sets. not sure about safari, as i'm not using a mac.

Picture Ender2213 about 4 years ago

ok how about this:
td {
height: 50px;
border: 1px dashed blue;
}
table {
border: 1px solid black;
}
