Hey there,

if you write it like that:

p {
  color: lightslategray;

it should actually work. I guess the problem could be that the color is called "lightslategray" instead of "lightslategrey" (note that there's an a in gray instead of an e)

But if not could you please tell us which challenge you're doing and also post your code? :)

Hie Tobias Thanx for the response i managed to see were i was going wrong. Am doing front end web designing. I was writting h{ color:lightslategray } instead of header{ color:lightslategray }

Will try give more details next time when am posting my question
