Yes, your right Ella, it mentions without quotes, thank you.


Yeah it is supposed to be empty, you just have to add the code there that will change the h1 to purple. I don't know what is that styles.css code you posted? It is not part of this challenge. There is not even an element in the index.html with the class ".tag"

the challenge is after inline css, and not the external css

<h1 style="color:purple";>Welcome to My Web Page!</h1>

No, you have to put the styles in the styles.css, oherwise why would it exist and be linked in the html file

Wow! Thank you all for your support! I'm new to treehouse, but it's already feeling like a big family! Thank you all! !!!!
