font-size; 1.75em;

Change the semi-colon after font-size to a colon.

<link href= 'http//fonts.googleapis.com/css?> Family=Chnaga+One|Open Sans:400 italic,700 italic,400,700,800'rel='stylesheet'type='text/css

Also, this is wrong too. You may want to look into Google Fonts for the 'Changa One' font.

Thank you for your help.

I'm not sure where your h1 CSS came from if you didn't type it up yourself. I just took the challenge and there was no h1 in the CSS to begin with. (not including the part where the color of h1, h2 is set to white)

It looks like you put a semicolon instead of colon after font-size

It should be:

h1{
  font-family: 'Changa One', sans-serif; 
  margin: 15px 0; 
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal; 
  line-height: 0.8em; 
}

Try that, and see if that works now

He is asking if the code for the task where you have to set the font-size and the font-weight is already provided.

Thank you for your help.

it did not work
