Hi Leon,

What colours is it asking you to enter and can you paste your code in a post please.

Here is a link to explain how to use Markdown to post your code How to post code

If you look at the bottom of the box when your typing a reply you will see Markdown Cheatsheet that will also explain how to post your code.

You have to make sure you have a bit of space under your last line of text in your post. Then you add three back ticks followed by html or css depending on the type of code your inserting.
Then straight after your last line of code you add another three back ticks.
Remember to leave at least a few lines between any text at the top or bottom of your code.

alt text

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick reply, It says "Bummer! Double check that you've styled paragraph (p) elements to be black with a hexidecimal value." Here is the code

a {
  text-decoration: none;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;

p {
  color: #111

Hopefully you can help.

Hey Leon,

The hex code for black is #000 not #111 but you also missed the ; at the end of it.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much, greatly appreciated.
