CSS CSS Basics (2014) Understanding Values and Units Styling the Intro Paragraph

.intro { font-size: 1.25em; line-height: 1.6; } .intro span { font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; }

Create a new rule that targets the span element inside .intro. Give the span element a bold font weight and an italic font style.

.intro { font-size: 1.25em; line-height: 1.6; }

.intro span { font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; }

How do I fix this?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>
    <div class="primary-content t-border">
<p class="intro">      
      <p>
        Lake Tahoe is one of the most <span>breathtaking attractions</span> 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="#more">Find out more</a>
    </div>
    <footer class="main-footer">
      <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
      <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>
style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.intro {
font-size: 1.25em;
line-height: 1.6;
}

.intro span {
font-weight: bold;
font-style: italic;
}

The challenge asks for the ".intro" class to be added to the p tag. It's currently wrapped within another p tag, so it's not targeting the span. Your CSS looks good.

<p class="intro">This is code!</p>

I tried the

.intro span { font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; }

And it did not work.

Any ideas why?

I added the <span class="intro"> to the html and it worked.
