Not sure why I get this error on the w3c validation website. I don't quite understand what it means:
Line 8, Column 140: Bad value http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Changa+One|Open+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800 for attribute href on element link: Illegal character in query: not a URL code point. …+One|Open+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800'rel='stylesheet'type='text/css'>
Syntax of IRI reference: Any URL. For example: /hello, #canvas, or http://example.org/. Characters should be represented in NFC and spaces should be escaped as %20.
Here is the actual code from the website design lesson:
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Changa+One|Open+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

I think the validator is angry about the pipe character in the URL string. There are strict rules about how a URL should be formatted. Now you can bend those rules and it will still work.
Try this and tell me if it validates?
