CSS CSS Basics (2014) Understanding Values and Units Pixels and Percentages

In this quiz, my work is being rejected although I'm pretty sure it right: .h2 {font-size: 53px; } Explanation?

I've tried in 2 different browsers. What am I missing or what is the issue with the quiz? I also periodically find that Workspaces won't launch.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.title {
  font-size: 26px; 

.h2 {
  font-size: 53px; 
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">

h2 is a html element. no need to used the . notation. You only use . for class and # for ids.
