Why is this not accepting my code?

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Could you post your code so we could help you debug it?

The challenge was create a breakpoint for devices 480 pixels wide or larger. Inside the breakpoint, set the h1 font-size to 2.5em.

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) { h1 { font-size: 2.5em; } }

Nevermind. It was the placement of the syntax. I was just putting it in the top of the challenge code because I didn't think placement mattered. I see now that code as well as code placement is checked in the challenges. Thank you much for your help, Sage.

I pasted your code to the bottom if the file and it worked fine. I think that if you do at the top of the file the CSS is overwriting the class because it cascades the styles.

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) { 
  h1 { 
    font-size: 2.5em; 
  } 
}
