Hie Munashe.

To italicize text in HTML we use <i> Your text </i> . em is used as a unit of measurement.

Hope this helps.

Enjoy coding.

That's not quite true. The <em> element is used in HTML5 to stress emphasis on its content which appears in italics.

Take out the use of <em> where you've used it in the second paragraph. That's not needed and is probably why the code challenge is failing. Good luck! :-)
