23. Many selectors, many properties


Hi! I'm stuck on this, did you see anything wrong? it says that h1 does not have font-family Verdana

Practice CSS + HTML

My first web page

h1 {
font-family: Verdana ;
color: #576D94 ;
p {
font-size: 18px ;
color: #4A4943 ;

I hope you can help me please!

I'm on the exercise titled ".23 Many selectors, many properties"

if you edit/update your question, leave a reply so i get a notification. Your html code is not visible, take the following steps to make it visible:


Can you pls. help me with instruction no. 03 - how to change the the background color of the text within the span tags? How do I write it in CSS?


well, p is the css selector for <p></p> so what do you think the css selector for <span</span> is?

general css syntax:

selector {
  property: value;

the property is provided in the exercise (background-color)the value is also given. Should be straight forward


What is the CSS selector for Span tags?


the same as the html opening tag of span but then with the greater-than and lesser-than symbol.


got it, Thanks :smiley:

I cannot, for the life of me figure what is wrong with my code! Please help! I keep getting the "Don't forget to set your h1 font to Verdana" error. 

 <!DOCTYPE html>

h1 {
p {


href, type and rel are attributes you need to add to your <link> tag, they are not html tags, like so:

<link type="text/css" ref="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css" />


i have the same problem
plz help


i can only help you if you post your code



check your link to stylesheet, nothing you wrote in css is visible in the output screen. If you need help with that, post (please not a print screen) your html code to the forum, use the instructions i provided earlier, if that doesn't work, try this. the backtick is located above the tab key on your keyboard


your second attribute (ref) should be rel

If that doesn't fix it, copy paste your code the forum, it is really hard to work with print screens


ok thanx
and sorry for screenshot


ref to rel
work :smile:


I'm Stuck...on exercise 23

this is my html code

and this is my css

h1 {
font-family: Verdana;
color: #576d94;

font-size: 18px;
color: #4a4943;


Your link to stylesheet is wrong, the third attribute of <link> should be href not ahref


I can't figure out what I've done wrong either.


<!DOCTYPE html>
		<linktype="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"></link>           
	    <h1>This is a lesson</h1>
	    <p>This is a paragraph. There are many others like it but this one is mine.</p>

font-family: Verdana;
color: #576D94;



your link to stylesheet is broken

attributes are seperated by spaces, like so:

<th colspan="2">

now look at your <link>, not all attributes are seperated by spaces
