  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

h1 { color: afff;

You can put your h1 tag anywhere you want. CSS is just a style sheet and so the order of elements doesn't matter.

You have an error in your h1 tag however - color: afff; is missing the #-sign. When you use colors in CSS you can either have spell out some standard colors, such as "white", "black", "red" and so on. But when you want to create different shades of a color you need to enter a hexadecimal value. They always start with the hash-sign followed by a hex-value.

While #afff will generate a color - I don't think you'll get the one you're looking for. If you want to set it to white, it's #fff.

If you ever find yourself looking for that special shade of a color, but don't know what hex value it has, then I'd point you to http://www.computerhope.com/htmcolor.htm. They have a list of many colors in pretty much any shade you want. I use that site myself, I think it's just great!

Good luck!

the syntax looks correct apart from the "#" at the beginning of the colour attribute, also add two ff to which you already have because at the moment it isnt classed as a colour

try color: #afffff; that will give you a light blue colour, which I'm assuming you were looking for :)
