Hi everyone,

I'm having an issue with Firefox. The background color shows up fine
in Chrome and Safari, but it's just white in Firefox. Is anyone else
having this problem? It seems like there are some css-related firefox
bugs, but I can't tell if I'm encountering one or making an error.

Rachel, what did you do to fix it? I'm also having issues with getting
my background the color I want...

Did you do something like this?

<body>
body {background-color:#ccff99;}
</body>

I'm honestly not sure. I was fiddling with a lot of things in my stylesheet, and the color didn't load in firefox; then it did.. It may be that I didn't properly refresh the page. Sorry I can't be of more help!

But if you're using an external stylesheet, I don't think you need the <body> tag.

Erin,

Hi! The css looks correct, but it needs to be in a separate file, without the body tags. Then reference it in your html file a link tag
