Not sure why this code isn't working: span.title { font-size: 26px; } span.title { font-size: 26px; }

Hi, I'm not sure why this code isn't working. I've also already tried it without the span, just using .title method.

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */span.title {

span.title {
  font-size: 26px; 
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <header>
        <span class="title">Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
        <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
      </header>
      <div class="main-content">
        <p>
          Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
        </p>
        <a href="#">Find out more</a>
        <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
        <p>
          As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.

  </body>

The beginning of the rule ("span.title {") appears twice: once just before the property setting, but also at the end of the top line right after the comment.

Remove either one and you should pass (I recommend keeping the one on the line by itself near the setting).
