The CSS specification defines a syntax and grammar with which the language is written. Conformance to this syntax and grammar is needed for your code to be correctly interpreted. A colon is used to separate a CSS property and its value.

.element {
this: valid

this not-valid

How do I fix this ?

Ensure that all your CSS properties have colons separating them from their values.
