CSS Trouble in Codecademy Tutorial

I'm stuck on a CSS part, and I swear I'm doing it right, but it says I'm not. Can someone help me?

Lesson: Web Fundamentals, Selecting HTML Elements, ‘Bordering on Insanity’.

Info:
In the stylesheet.css tab:
01. Set your tds (table data cells) to have a height of 50px so we can see them better when we add our border.
02. Give your tds a border of 1px dashed blue.
03. Give your table a border of 1px solid black.

Code I put in:
td{
height:50px;
border:1px dashed blue;
}
table{
border:1px solid black;
}

Message I get:
Oops, try again! Did you set your <table> border width to 1px? Check all your opening and closing tags!

By all appearences, I have it right, but…

Maybe they're looking for this:
td{
height:50px;
border-width:1px;
border-style:dashed;
border-color:blue;
}
table{
border:1px;
border-style:solid;
border-color:black;
}

Huh. They didn't set it up like that, but I'll give it a shot. Thank you!

Same thing… I'm wondering if it's a site glitch or something. I skipped that section; maybe it'll work.

If you google “Codecademy bordering on insanity,” there are tons of complaints saying that the lesson is broken.

Thank you for that. Skipped it.

I guess they called it ‘Bordering on Insanity’ for a reason.
