HTML How to Make a Website Customizing Colors and Fonts Write Hexadecimal Colors

Set the color of paragraphs to black using hexadecimal value?

so, the challenge says "Set the color of paragraphs to black using hexadecimal value"

I put

p { color: #000000; }

And still did not work! "background-color:" does not work either so please don't suggest it :)


a {
  text-decoration: none;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

h1, h2 {
  color: #ffffff;

    p { color: #000000; }

Hi Jesse,

There's nothing wrong with your paragraph rule.

The problem is with your previous h1, h2 rule. You closed it off with a left curly brace instead of a right curly brace. This ends up causing the browser to discard your paragraph rule as it tries to recover from this error.
