Text shadows ( Please Help)

This is the question. Create a text shadow for the h1 using a horizontal offset of 0, a vertical offset of 2px, a blur radius of 6px, and shadow color with the HEX value 3E6AA8.

The answer that I used was h1{ text-shadow: 0 2px 6px 3E6AA8; }

I have rewatched the video a few times and i do not see what I am doing wrong. May someone please assist me. Thanks for your help :)

You forgot the hash sign (#) before your hex code.

Lol I just figured this out and was like I could just kick myself right now. But thanks for your help :D!

No problem! It happens to all of us eventually. ;)

h1{ text-shadow: 0 2px 6px #3E6AA8; }
