Sandbox - cannot change "menu" background to black - what am I doing wrong?

    Hi,
    I have been looking at this most of the day and I don't understand what I am doing wrong here. So hopefully someone can help me! I just want to change the navigation background color to black. It is currently light gray and I can't seem to be able to do this. Here is my CSS code:

    #access {<br /> background-color:#000000;<br /> padding:10px 35px;<br /> }</p> <p>.menu a:link,.menu a:active,.menu a:visited {<br /> color:#FFF;<br /> text-decoration:none;<br /> }</p> <p>.menu a:hover {<br /> color:#FFF;<br /> text-decoration:underline;<br /> }</p> <p>.menu {<br /> background-color:#000;<br /> }

    The hyperlinks css seem to go through but not the background.

    Thanks a lot!
    Geraldine

    Neverming, I just figured it out looking at he sandbox stylesheet file. It should be

    #access div{background:#000;}

    instead of

    .menu {
    background-color:#000;
    }
