Hey Randall Tucker try removing the parentheses around the values you're giving text-shadow and make sure to give as much context as you can when posting questions so we can best assist! You can see more examples of how to set the value and the syntax here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/text-shadow

Hi Randall,

Try using the "Get Hints" button next to the "check work" button. There is no need for the parenthesis or comma's being used in your text-shadow property

Hope this helps, Shaun
