Seems to work, but still get a 'bummer'. Is there anything I'm not doing wrong?

Would actually be handy to always give the option to view the answer(s).

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 id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>
    <div class="primary-content t-border">
      <p class="intro">
        Lake Tahoe is one of the most <span class="strong">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.

Your code is correct, but you need to target the span element inside .intro instead of .strong. For that, you need to use a descendent selector instead of adding a class to the span because the challenge never asked you to do that.

.intro span {
  font-weight: bold;
  font-style: italic;
}

Btw just noticed my question was not correct. The word 'not' shouldn't have been there. Actually quite funny :)
