poor tutorial-must show error or you can not proceed -i see nothing wrong

with out live intructor you get caught in dead end- typed code exactly as shown - keeps saying don't forget style element when it is there.

index.html
<style>

  h1{
    color: blue;
  }

</style>
<h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

Hi Brett - you have an error in the fact that the color you have to set the h1 element to is 'Green' and not 'Blue', so like below:

<body>
  <style>
  h1 {
    color: green;
  }
  </style>
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
</body>

You always have to read the question carefully.

it seems i was changing the style element to blue when it should have been green - by this time i was trying anything to get past it-thanks.
