Beginning HTML and CSS


I am currently completing task 3 of 3 for Beginning HTML and CSS.

I keep seeing this warning after clicking check work "Make sure you're coloring the h1 tag green", I have set the h1 tag to green and am wondering if it's a glitch in the system?

Regards, K

There shouldn't be. I just passed with the code below.

    h1 {
      color: green;
    Nick Pettit
<h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

Ok, thanks for that :)

This is what I entered:

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

I tried entering additional info underneath the the </body> tag - it keeps saying error?

Most likely because you have to use color instead of colour,

Got it, thanks! We spell it colour in Australasia.

Thanks again :)

It took me a few tries to realize I was spelling it colour instead of color as well >.< Glad you figured it out and can keep learning!

Hehe, thanks Johanna! Good luck with your learning :)
