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:
