Where is my error?????

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

index.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>

   <p class="main-pg">My amazing website</p> 
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
  </head>
  <body>

    <p>My amazing website</p>
.main-pg {

    }
</body>

</html>
styles.css

Lynn, check the answers on your last couple of questions, I posted the answers that will work for each step and where you went wrong. your error is the CSS should be in your styles.css and your .main-pg class declaration needs to be within the <p> tag.

You won't start writing CSS until task 2. For task 1, you need to add the class to the paragraph element in the HTML. That will look something like this:

    <p class="main-pg">My amazing website</p>

Then, when you do get to the CSS tasks, all the CSS code should go on the "styles.css" tab instead of mixing it in with the HTML.
