Hey there

I believe in this one all you need to add is

.intro {
  font-size: 1.25em;
  line-height: 1.6;

as the line-height is unit less

Actually, I don't think that's correct: you do need the unit specified as, in this case, ems. You could also try putting it in as a percentage: 160% and see if that works better. Also check to make sure there isn't an error elsewhere in the CSS or the HTML that might be causing things not to work correctly. Good luck with it!

Thank you both very much for your input, i made my first website with Nick no problem but some of the CSS in this part of the course isnt very clear to understand! It proves it by both of you having different answers so its not just me that dosnt see it! As it turns out Richard was right as he wrote it too!

Hmm, that's interesting. I checked an earlier assignment I'd done and had the units specified, but things are changing so fast in CSS, it might well be different now. Thanks for following up, and hope all continues to go well for you.
