Quiz asks me to set font-weight to bold for a p element for class main-content. Can't see what's wrong with this?

.main-content p { font-weight=bold; }

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
header span {
   font-size=26px;
}

.main-content p {
 font-weight=bold; 
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header>
      <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>
    <p>
      Lake Tahoe is one of the most <span>breathtaking attractions</span> 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>
    <div class="main-content">
      <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.
      </p>
      <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a>
    </div>
    <footer>
      <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

Hi Lyla,

Here's error:- = which suppose to be semi-coma : after both font-size and font-weight.

header span {
   font-size: 26px;
}

.main-content p {
 font-weight: bold; 
}

Thanks Traci & Salman! I always seem to be stumbling on the syntax!

In CSS, you use a colon instead of an equals sign. Your answers are correct, except swap the = for :

header span { font-size: 26px; }

.main-content p { font-weight: bold; }
