Why is this not right?

The preview looks fine, but it keeps giving me the error that I didn't add the style tag.

  h1 {color: red;

    <h1>Sherreka Burton</h1>

Ok, well I think they want you to place the style element right above the header. That is in this case the h1.

Try placing the style tags between body and h1 :)

Thanks, Saskia! That was it!

you are welcome :)

Hi Sherreka,

what exactly is the challenge asking from you? Word by word?

Usually, if you place style tags within the html, you'd either place them within the


or as a style attribute right with the corresponding item that needs styling. In this case like that:

<h1 style="color: red;">Sherreka Burton</h1>

But I do not know the exact task you need to fulfill, so it is hard fo rme to answer your question ;)

Here are the instructions: "We're starting out with an <h1> element and a <body> element. Add a <style> element just above the <h1>."
