CSS Question

<button> background image

I have got a little problem with setting a background image for


Here is the html I have got on site:

<button id="rock" onClick="choose(1)">Rock</button>

And here is the CSS:

button {
font-size: 18px;
border: 2px solid #AD235E;
border-radius: 100px;
width: 150px;
height: 150px;

button #rock {
background: url(img/rock.png) no-repeat;

I don't know why the button's background is still white.

Astonishing that no answer addresses or mentions the actual problem here.

The CSS selector button #rock says "give me an element with the id rock inside a <button> element", like this:

    <span id="rock">This element is going to be affected.</span>

But what you wanted is a <button> element with the id rock. And the selector for that would be button#rock (note the missing space between button and #rock).

And as @Greg already mentioned: #rock is already specific enough to target the button and could be used on its own.
