The text "Nick Pettit" needs to be between the


Tags in your html file not your CSS file. So your css file should only have:

h1 {
  color: green;

Hope that helps,


  <style>h1{color: green;}</style>
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

Your entire answer should look like this. You need "Nick Petit" within <h1> braces in order to style it with an h1 selector. I'm not sure how you go pass the second question without doing so. Maybe you're trying inline formatting? In that case you would do something like:

<h1 style= "color: green;">Nick Petit</h1>
