You might want to watch some of the videos again. You're trying to select the h1 element by a class called "welcome to my webpage". This is wrong for multiple reasons.

  1. Classes can't have spaces
  2. You don't have specified a class for your h1 element.

To select the h1 element, you really just have to use the h1 selector. Furthermore you don't assign styles to an element with the '=' operator, you do that by using a colon.
