What you typed on the forum is good, but maybe there is something wrong in your code above what you typed (as you haven't posted it, I can't tell), probably an unnecessary curcly brace ? I don't know, you should check, here is the right css.

EDIT: you closed the curcly brace and then you put the semi-colon, It's the reverse...That's the mistake you did.





p em{



Thank you Geoffrey,

Looks like the ( ; ) was the problem I remove the ( ; ) inside the curly braces and worked! thanks again
