Rem units

Okay, the base font is set to 16px. My first two tasks give this result:

h1 { font-size: 2.5em; }

p { font-size: 1.5em; }

after that I am supposed to return the link with the class more to the base font size using rem. I tired this and it didn't work:

a class="more" { font-size: 1rem; }

I have tried all sorts of things and nothing seems to work. I even tried adding in the html font-size 1em, 1rem and 16px and nothing seems to work. Please help. Thanks! ;-)

There are two ways you can write a class selector for this:

a.more {font-size: 1rem;}

or

.more {font-size: 1rem;}

You only use class="more" when you add a class to an HTML element -- not in your CSS.
