HTML How to Make a Website Beginning HTML and CSS Review: Beginning HTML and CSS

I need help.The first color i put in my text is blue.The second one is green.But the blue color changed to green.

Well.Basically when I type the color coding and I input the word blue in the first headline and when I try to type another headline with a different color.The first headline color will change to the second headline color.


h1 { color: blue; }

</style> <h1>Hello</h1>


h1 {

color: Green;


</style> <h1>Im mak1sha.I like to play basketball</h1>

1 Answer

that is because css cascades down, meaning that the h1 element will take on whatever property is last on the list. if you want to have 2 different color level 1 headings then what you could do is give them a class for example


h1 { 
 color: blue; 

.example {
  color: green;



<h1 class="example">Im mak1sha.I like to play basketball</h1>

you can also give the other heading a class if you only want that heading to be blue

remember that choosing the h1 element in your css will aply to every h1 in the the html document, so if you want to target a specific tag then you must give it a class and use that class in your css
