CSS CSS Basics (2014) Getting Started with CSS External Style Sheets

when i write my style sheet code it is highlighted in red

why is my style.css code in red and it doesnt do what it's suppose to when i preview it

Hey kit prescott

I'm not exactly sure where the error might be occurring without seeing your code but it might just be a simple syntax error. Try checking for a missing curly brace or perhaps a missing semicolon.

body {
  text-align: center;

header {
  background-color: orange;

h1 {
  font-size: 72px;
  color: white;

p {
  font-size: 20px;
