(heading 1) "Home" moves all the way to the right after adding jQuery. Track: jQuery Basics: Perform Part 1

Hello there,
I tried modifying CSS for H1 by adding 5px to the top (45px, 0, 10px) as suggested in a different post for the same problem and also tried to add padding of 10px but no change. Still displays H1 "Home" on the right and not at the center.

// Create a select and append to #menu 
var $select = $("<select></select>");

// Cycle over menu links
$("#menu a").each(function(){

  var $anchor = $(this);
  // Create an option 
  var $option = $("<option></option>");

  // option's value is the href

  // option's text is text of link 

  // Append option to select 

h1 {
    margin: 40px 0 10px;
    text-align: center;
    color: #384047;

I added

to the css for the h1 element and it returned to the center.

Hope this helps.

That worked, thanks!
