CSS CSS Basics (2014) Understanding Values and Units Styling the Intro Paragraph

I coded challenge task 4 of 5 correctly (I believe, and it achieves the intended purpose) but it still gives me an error

I was tasked with targeting the span within the into class, and making the font bold and italic. I did those things, but it still gives me an error and suggests that I'm targeting the incorrect span? It won't let me advance....

Please post your code so we can take a look.

Sorry, thought I'd included it when I submitted. I've tried the span element as both a class and an ID, and both got rejected. Is there another way to specify that specific span that I'm forgetting about? Thanks for taking a look!

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

#div-span {
    font-weight: bold;
  font-style: italic;

So you're really close. You dont have to add an id to span tag.

.intro span - literally means target all paragraphs(CHILD) inside the paragraph(PARENT) with the class of "intro".

hope that helps

.intro span {
  font-weight: bold;
  font-style: italic;


Thank you!!!!!!!!!
