Android Build a Simple Android App Creating the Screen Layout Setting Colors

I am stuck on Challenge Task 1 of 2, Build a Simple Android App.

I have set the text color to be white: android:textColor="@android:color/white" >

activity_main.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent"
  android:background="@android:color/white" >

  <TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:text="Treehouse loves me!"
    android:textSize="72sp" />
    android:textColor="@android:color/white" >

Hi Frederick - The code setting the text color should be within the opening and closing tags of the TextView:

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:text="Treehouse loves me!"
    android:textSize="72sp"
    android:textColor="@android:color/white" />

thanks for your help, I have just started at teamtreehouse.
