put the style inside the body before the text

it is fine, just in the wrong place. it needs to be inside the body tag; you have it above it :)

the style tag needs to be inside the <head></head> !


Hi Cassio,

Although this is valid code and would be how you would want to do it on a real project it won't work for this challenge.

This challenge has specific requirements on where the <style> tags should be placed.
