Task: Change the HTML Paragraph tag to an h1 tag.

You've misunderstood the task, you are supposed to change the p tag into h1 tag.

What you did here was a taboo. No tags should be able to wrap the html, head, and the body tag.

Take note : All contents ( paragraphs, texts, images, etc ) of a website should be inside the body tag.

Correct answer for index.html :

<h1>Welcome to My Web Page!</h1>

Correct answer for style.css :

h1 { 
     color: red;
}

Just with purple not red :-)
