In the following code, I experimented by removing the bold and replacing it with italics. It didn't work.

After it didn't work, I replaced the bold, text. That didn't work either. What happened here?

I wasn't able to edit the question, I kept getting a bummer message, so here it is again with the code:

input[type="checkbox"]:checked + label { font-weight: italics; } /then I switched it back to bold/ input[type="checkbox"]:checked + label { font-weight: bold; }

Ah ok... I think that the issue you're running into is that italics is not a value of the property font-weight. Instead, give this a shot

font-style: italic
