HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS Getting Familiar with HTML and CSS Test: Changing the Look of a Web Page

How do I change the color of the H1 tag?

<h1> class ="tag location > "Where is Scooby Doo?" </h1> .location {color: purple}

index.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
  </head>
  <body>

    <h1> class = "location > Welcome to My Web Page!</h1>

  </body>
</html>
styles.css
.location 
{color: purple;}

Can anyone show me how to change the H1 color to purple? I followed along with the video but I'm confused on how to get this right. I made an attempt by using the class and location .

You want to put a closing quotation mark in your h1 and put the class declaration in your opening h1 tag like this.

<h1 class ="location"> Welcome to My Web Page!</h1>

Thank you

I did what you mentioned. It still doesn't give me a correct answer.. also in the question they ask you not to use quotes?

I'm not sure what you meant by posting best answer..

<h1 class ="location"> Welcome to My Web Page!</h1> Try this

<h1 class ="location"> Welcome to My Web Page!</h1>
