How is it formatted? Can you please post your code? From the sound of it and from the looks of it, you may need to give it a class IN the opening of the heading tag, not at the end. It should be within the first < >.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Lake Tahoe</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css"> </head> <body> <header class="main-header"> <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span> </header> <h1> class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1> <p> Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation. </p> <a href="#">Find out more</a> <div> <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2> <p> As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles. </p> <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a> </div> </body> </html>

You closed the tag too soon.

This is what you have:

< h1 > class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California< /h1 > Do you notice the h1 tag is not closed in the correct spot? It should look like this:

< h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California< /h1 >

@Ariel thanks alot, it worked.
