Hi, This is just a small error. You have put your H1 tags inside the style tags which are meant for css. Try something like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
  h1 {
    color:green;
  }
</style>
</head>
<body>
  <h1> Nitin Valvi </h1>
</body>
</html>

I hope this works for you. Cheers

You have your h1 tags in the style tags. Try this instead:

<head>
<style>
  h1 {
    color:green;
  }
</style>
</head>

<h1> nitin valvi </h1>

edit: style tags need to go inside head tags, d'oh!

Hi, Bryce Santos. I think you forgot to put the body tags around your H1 tags and then close the page with </html> :) Cheers.

Yeah, I should have written out the code completely and correctly when I edited the post. Your post works better :D
