HTML How to Make a Website Beginning HTML and CSS Write a CSS Selector and Property

Am I missing something?

Got to challenge task 3 where it states; "Nice! Finally, set the color of the h1 element to green."

so I have added it to the css it asks you to add;

h1 { color: green; }

Result = Bummer! null

So I tried adding it inline; <h1 style="color: green">Text goes here</h1>

Result = Bummer! null

So what am i missing, pretty sure it not me???

Hi Tony,

The syntax you are using is correct. You are doing the "How to Make a Website" project right? I just tried the code below and it accepted it. So if this is the same thing that you are entering, then it must be a bug. Try refreshing your browser and doing the challenge again. Good luck! :-)

<body>
<style>
h1 { color: green; }
</style>
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
</body>

yes i'm really sorry, I have literally just realised i had left out the trailing </style> doh! Added and all works perfectly. Thanks you very much for your time :)

No problem, happy to help : )
