CSS How to Make a Website Customizing Colors and Fonts Write Hexadecimal Colors

I'm not setting the color of the paragraph to black right.

Getting message that says to double check that I've styled h1 elements to be white with a hexidecimal value. Here is the code I put in:

Do I need an h1 code in as well? I'm not sure how this should look...And I have rewatched the video.

paragraph {

color: #000; }

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

#paragraph {
   color: #000;
}

Hi there,

Try replacing your #paragraph style rule with

h1 {
  color: #fff;
}

The hexadecimal for the brightest shade of a colour is F rather than 0 so 3 F's as a hexadecimal value will equate to white. :-)

just to add you didn't need the # before h1 that was my mistake.

H1 is just your bog standard element selector for selecting level 1 heading elements :-)
