Challenge task 2 of 2 trouble

I'm not sure how to change the color of the h1 tag to purple. There's no style.css code to change and I can't recall how the class structure works into it.

index.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
  </head>
  <body>

    <h1>Welcome to My Web Page!</h1>

  </body>
</html>
styles.css

Hi there,

You can target a tag with its tag name, so you start with h1, then some curly braces to contain the styles. That looks like:

h1 {
}

Then you add the style - in this case, making the color purple. That looks like this:

h1 {
  color: purple;
}

You'll get the hang of the syntax as things progress - hope this helps!
