You seem to have en extra curly brace right beneath your header rule, try to remove that. And as Bryan Manhollan has pointed out, your css body { text-align: center; } rule is missing a semicolon. Also, the div element in your HTML file is not closed properly. You need to add a / after the < in the closing div tag, which is positioned right before the closing body tag.

div { background-color:lightblue; } but is this correct

if you can check nicely i first wrote the body css
