text shadow

"Create a text shadow for the paragraph using a horizontal offset of 0, a vertical offset of 1px, and shadow color of white."

I put

p1 { text-shadow: 0px 1px #FFFFFF; }

I thought this would work but it doesn't. I got nothing. Please help.

You have written 'p1' as the selector; they are asking you to target the paragraphs, which is simply 'p'. Otherwise, your code is fine! Remove the '1' from your selector and you're good to go :)

I wonder why I had to type p1? Weird.

Thank Much!
