Can't transition :target, what's wrong with my code?

I'm just trying to create a sample of transitioning :target. The targeting works, but the transition isn't. Can somebody please tell me why? Thanks.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
#news1 {
	background-color: white;
	-webkit-transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
	-moz-transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
	-o-transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
	-ms-transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
	transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
}
#news2 {
	background-color: white;
	-webkit-transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
	-moz-transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
	-o-transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
	-ms-transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
	transition: background-color, 2s, ease, .1s;
}
#news1:target {
	border: 2px solid #FF0000;
	background-color: #e5eecc;
}
#news2:target {
	border: 2px solid #FF0000;
	background-color: #e5eecc;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<h1>This is a heading</h1>

<p><a href="#news1">Jump to New content 1</a></p>
<p><a href="#news2">Jump to New content 2</a></p>

<p>Click on the links above and the :target selector highlight the current active HTML anchor.</p>

<p id="news1"><b>New content 1...</b></p>
<p id="news2"><b>New content 2...</b></p>

</body>
</html>

Just in case anyone's wondering why I think this isn't working, when clicking one of the links, the target is supposed to transition in background color, i.e., the background color should change gradually, not abruptly, and I don't know why the transition is not working. Thanks.

Remove the commas from your transition declarations.
