HTML How to Make a Website Customizing Colors and Fonts Write Hexadecimal Colors

Trouble styling paragraph element.

In a code challenge I am being asked to set the paragraph element to be black with a hex value. I have entered what I believe to be the correct section of code, but I keep getting the Bummer response.

Shouldn't it be the following?

p { color: #000; }

I've tried this in a practical situation and it appears to be working fine for me.

a {
  text-decoration: none;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;

p {
  color: #000;

Ah, I found the error. The previous deceleration wasn't closed properly with a }. Thanks for checking out my question though.

Hi there! That part is fine. The problem is the rule above it is missing a closed curly brace }. Try it again after putting the curly brace in its spot :sparkles:
