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

Increase font size of h2 to 53 pixels

I am still getting an error on this one even though my code is almost identical to first line of code that I already wrote.

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
span.title {
 font-size: 26px; 
}
.h2 {
  font-size: 53px;
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">

  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <header>
        <span class="title">Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
        <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
      </header>
      <div class="main-content">
        <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.

        <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.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
span.title {
 font-size: 26px; 
}
.h2 { /* Placing a . infront of anything designates it as a class. Just remove the period and everything should work fine.*/
  font-size: 53px;
}


/* corrected */
h2 {
  font-size: 53px;
}

Hi

Remove the full stop from before the h2, a full stop denotes a class

Happy coding

h2 is an element type, not a class name, so it doesn't need the dot in front of it.
