Stuck on, "finally italicize the text in the paragraph"?

Hi Fedor. Remember that in the previous questions for that quiz they also asked you to create a rule for the font family stack used in the paragraph element. Try including the rule for the font-family rule and your font-style rule which is correct) within the same declaration for the p element. Like so:

p {
  font-family: Baskerville, Times New Roman, Times, Serif;
  font-style: italic;

you could also define it all in one font. p {font: italic 5px Baskerville, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;} when i first entered it i did not include the font-weight of 5px. I forgot about that small rule. In any case I entered a font-weight and the answer was accepted. Guil explains it close to the end of the first video.
