For the Challenge you only have to add style tags above the h1, not include a stylesheet.

If you're unsure how to do that I suggest watching the previous video again - https://teamtreehouse.com/library/how-to-make-a-website/beginning-html-and-css/add-style-to-the-page

Thanks, I worked it out.

Out of interest, why would you use this type of styling method as opposed to setting up a seperate stylesheet?

This is what is called, 'Inline Styling', and it typically has precedence over external stylesheets. It is from the principles of Specificity [1][2] and the Cascade [3][4]. You can find out more here on Treehouse in the Fundamental Concepts section of the CSS Basics course.
