What is a "style tag"? I don't think it was mentioned in the "Add Style" video.

see 02:29 of this video to see how nick adds style tags to his html

a style tag looks like this

<style>
</style>

you put css selectors between the tags like so:

<style>
h1 {color:red;}
</style>

make sure you put the style tags inside the body tag but above the h1 tag

<body>
  <style>
    h1 {}
    </style>
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
</body>

It's simply:

<style>

</style>

It is used to define style information directly in the HTML document.

Thanks to both of you!
