The name of the property that changes the text color is simply "color" (instead of "font").

Also, when you're selecting an element by tag name, don't put a period (dot) in front of the name. A period would indicate you're selecting a class name instead of a tag.

Also, Please make sure you remove the (dot) in front of (h1) selector within your CSS file.
