Not sure if this is the answer you are looking for however, it looks like you have a small syntax typo in your CSS.

You are missing the end t from word height in your line-height property rule:

line-heigh: 1.6;

It should look like this:

line-height: 1.6;

Interesting point. None of that CSS code should be there before task 1. Most curious!

If it would help to see an example of a class added to an element, the "footer" element on line 19 already has the class "main-footer" added to it.

Thanks Jamie


Yes, Steven. I mess it up good and had to go get it from the notes...
