Hi,

First your HTML Syntax is a little incorrect, you have a space between the = sign of your class attribute and the value. The second mistake is that you have your closing quote outside of the opening p tag. The third mistake is that your styles should be applied in the style.css sheet within the class rule you made in the previous stage.

<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
  </head>
  <body>

    <p class="main-pg">My amazing website</p>

  </body>
</html>
.main-pg {
    border: 4px solid red;
}
