<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header class="main-header">

Hi there, Eliot! You were doing just fine right up until Step 4. Step 4 asks you to target the main-heading class. Note that this is distinct from the main-header class. You are then to set the main-heading class to 72px. Instead, you've set the main-header class to 72px.

Only the text within the <h1> element should be 72px.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
