I am not getting credit for correct answer on "add a class to <p>" in HTML questions, and it wont skip

i answered correctly <p class="main.pg"> and it keeps telling me i am wrong, and therefore cannot move forward

index.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
  </head>
  <body>

    <p class="main.pg">My amazing website</p>

  </body>
</html>

There should be a hyphen instead of the dot in the class name. Check this out:

<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
  </head>
  <body>

    <p class="main-pg">My amazing website</p>

  </body>
</html>
