if you have several h1's you should assign a class if you want to target a certain h1 but other than that you can just select the element by typing the element name

h1 { color: purple; }

and you might have several css files so you should drop your css file into a css folder and change your link to href="css/style.css">

It's up to you to write the CSS here. Start with a selector that targets your element. You can use h1 as the selector since that's the kind of element.

Then make a block with braces ({}), and inside that put the parameter you want to change and the value, separated by a colon. You may have figured by now but the parameter is color and the value you want to give it is purple.

So should I make H1 into a class? Or should I be targeting H1 in css in which case after I put :target { what goes next?
