    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 {
    background-color:#000000;
    padding:10px 35px;
    }

    .menu a:link,.menu a:active,.menu a:visited {
    color:#FFF;
    text-decoration:none;
    }

    .menu a:hover {
    color:#FFF;
    text-decoration:underline;
    }

    .menu {
    background-color:#000;
    }

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

    Thanks a lot!

    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;
    }
