CSS CSS Basics (2014) Understanding Values and Units Styling the Intro Paragraph

Trying to enter in the font-weight as bold but it is not accepting my answer. I have it as follows: font-weight: bold;

the code is for: .intro span{ font-weight:bold; font-style:italic; }

What is incorrect in this formatting?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    </header>
    <div class="primary-content t-border">
      <p class= "intro"
        Lake Tahoe is one of the most <span>breathtaking attractions</span> located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.

In your HTML file, i noted you have removed ">" after the opening <p> tag. i hope this helps

.intro{
  font-size: 1.25em; 
  line-height: 1.6;
}
.intro span{
  font-weight: bold;
  font-style: italic;
}

a:link  {
 text-decoration: none;
}

Your CSS is good, up through task 4. But as others have observed, the problem is that when you added the class to the paragraph, the end of the tag got accidentally removed.

      <p class="intro">   <!-- put '>' mark back -->
