If you want the font color to be green, it should be like this

h1 {

This will go in your css file.

If you're using <style> inside of your <head> element, then it should go inside there.

The formatting that Gurpeer Duhra used is generally best especially as you start adding more styling to an element it will be easier to read and debug.


h1 { color: green; }

h1 { color: green; }
