i dont know or how i can fix the error. please help me understand. this is a scrrenshot of my error. http://i.imgur.com/ZHD2cki.jpg. also, is there any other way to share screenshots? THANKS

I had the same. I didn't spend long worrying about it as the code still works. I figured that there were lots of other things I didn't understand yet so just carried on with the course! Maybe that's not the attitude ...

URL encode the the characters that are giving you some problems! For example: The pipe characters "|" - "%7C". :)

The Pipe character " | "in your URL calling the Google Font is an invalid character for a URL.

This is what is causing the validation error in your code.
