Code challenge not accepting this?


I am on the code challenge where you use media queries to define width and for some reason it isn't accepting the below? it appears to be correct.

@media (max-width: 768px){ .title {font-size: 1.4rem;} .h1 {font-size: 5rem;}

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
@media (max-width: 1020px){
  .main-header{background: tomato; color: white;
  @media (max-width: 768px){
    .title {font-size: 1.4rem;}
    .h1 {font-size: 5rem;}

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>

        <div class="primary-content">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.

        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

Hey. I think it is because you used background instead of background-color. Can you try with the following snippet?

.main-header{background-color: tomato; color: white; }

Let me know it worked.

You are mixing up the tag with a class.

Instead of :

.h1 { css here; }

you will want to do something like:

.main-heading {css here; }
