As Scott suggested, "front-size" isn't a CSS property name. The instructions want you to set "font‍-size".

You're welcome! Honestly, I can't tell you how many times I have spent HOURS racking my brains trying to figure out things like this. I am a SLOPPY typer (at best) so it's quite common. I rely on my text editor (Visual Studio Code) and the "developer tools" in my browser to help me sort all of it out.
