Customizing Colors and Fonts Challenge

Hi I am stuck on the second part of the task, I am supposed to set the fallback to open sans but I keep on getting the "bummer" about not putting the fallback in. Here's my code:

    font-family: 'Open Sans', 'sans-serif';

try removing the ' ' marks from sans-serif! :)

Hi Andrew, if 'Open Sans' is the fallback what is the initial value? Do you need to add another font-family to the beginning of the declaration?

I think I meant sans-serif should be the fallback.

But anyway, removing the '' worked, but how come it did not like it with them in?

because you dont need the '' marks if the word is put together like sans-serif, only if the value is 2 words like Open Sans

I see, thanks.
