Hey! Your code is totally valid but in this case TH is looking for a line-height of 1.6, try setting it like that (be careful not to use 'em' as the instructions say it has to be 'unitless').

It asks for a line-height 1.6 times bigger than the font-size, and actually my problem is task 4, i don't know why it popped up as Task 3 is wrong as it let me passed it. The issue is the code for bold I think, but I have changed several things and it still does not accept it. Any idea?


.intro { font-size: 1.25em; line-height: 1.6; }

.intro span { font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; }

Try that, it should work.
