Hi Michael! -

The issue is with the period in front of the h1. <h1> is an HTML element, and therefore does not get a period in front of that. We only put periods in front of classes, such as main-header in your code above.

Changing your code to the following should fix your issue:

h1 {
  font-size: 5rem;

Happy coding!
