What am I doing wrong here?

Am I not writing the correct code?

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.title {
                font-size : 26px;
}
h2 {
                font-size : 53px;
}
.main-content {
                width : 75%;
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <header>
        <span class="title">Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
        <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
      </header>
      <div class="main-content">
        <p>
          Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions 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.
        </p>
        <a href="#">Find out more</a>
        <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
        <p>
          As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.

        <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a>
      </div>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>

get rid of the spaces between the property names and the colon. it should read "width: 75%" not "width : 75%". No spaces is standard practice. In real life I don't think it matters, but the testing algorithm isn't accepting it with the extra space.

You can use the Minify Code site to minify or beautify (what you're going for) CSS, HTML & Javascript.

Your code should look this way:

.title {
    font-size: 26px;
}
h2 {
    font-size: 53px;
}
.main-content {
    width: 75%;
}

with the properties indented.

Hope that helps! -Luke
