It's asking you to write CSS in your HTML document (as opposed to writing your CSS in a separate file), and this is done with the <style></style> tag. This code passes the entire challenge:

        color: green;
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

As you can see, it's just like writing normal CSS, but you just write it in between a <style></style> tag directly in your HTML

Not sure exactly who/what "it" is but a style tag is used to add style elements within your html code. You can also do this using a CSS stylesheet instead which makes it look a lot cleaner. Anyway, here's an example from w3schools.com with some additions. It shows a style tag used to change the body color to yellow and paragraph text to blue.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html>

<head> <style> body {background-color:yellow;} p {color:blue;} </style> </head> <body> <p>This text will be blue</p> </body>
