I'm not sure why the challenge didn't catch it before, but it looks like there are issues starting with task 1.

When adding attributes to a tag, add only the attribute and value. In this code additional "div" elements have been added to the tags, which is not correct syntax.

Also, be careful to use the name asked for in each step. Here, only the name "main-heading" has been used, but the first task asked for "main-head‍er". Similarly, the CSS rules should have different selectors.

For example:

  <header  <div class="main-heading".>...</div>    <!-- original -->
  <header class="main-header">                     <!-- corrected -->

Thanks Steven I was following hints and they were wrong
