Change your import for this: <link rel='stylesheet' href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans|Open+Sans+Condensed:300'>

You don't need to specify the type="text/css" because this is a font.

Ok,.. just did that and it still says it is wrong

Start it over and paste this before or after your css import:

<link rel='stylesheet' href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans|Open+Sans+Condensed:300'>

Still did not work

hello. I actually copied your font link and paste when I did the challenge so that is fine because it passed. What I see you did is that you added every thing to the H1 AND H2 headings when it only asked you to do for H1. Also, you included extra declarations that it did not ask for. and you had an extra closing curly bracket as well IDK if that affects it too. This was my code for the finished product and it passed.

a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

Thank you so much, It worked
