Can you put closing style tag behind h1? <style> <h1> Nick Pettit</h1> </style>

What the challenge is looking for is

<style> h1{ color: green; } </style> <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

  1. You start by having the <style> tag before the <h1>

    <style>
    </style>
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
    
  2. Select the h1 element in the style (not forgetting the curly braces)

    <style>
    h1{
    }
    </style>
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
    
  3. Then you finally color it green

    <style>
    h1{
    color: green;
    }
    </style>
    <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
    

Hope that makes sense.
