Either I am not getting the code right, or the code is not getting me right.

I added this code : font-family: 'Source Sans Pro', 'sans-serif'; yet the website is telling me "Bummer! Be sure to include sans-serif as a fallback."

To get the code to pass you can just remove the ' ' from around sans-serif.

Just as a note the ' ' marks are only required for font names containing spaces.

Hope this helps Bob

did you try putting it like this

font-family: "Source Sans Pro", sans-serif;

without the wrapping quotes?

I actually tried typing the code again at a different computer- it let me pass.
