Difficulty with font-size for header

Why it saying “It looks like your header’s font-size is 32px instead of 16px.” When my code is “h1 style=“color:green; font -size:16px””

because you have a space between font and -size

for next time, use one of the two following options to make your code/indent is visible: (made be easier next time)

select your code and press ctrl + shift + c (or cmd + shift + c if you use a mac)

if this instructions are unclear, you can also insert 3 backticks before and after your code, like so:


the backtick is located above the tab key on your keyboard

I had that problem too, and I hadn’t left a space between font and -size.

I found the only way to make it work for me was to retype the code -including the style attribute- and delete the original line.

Was I missing something else?

That depends, you still have the old code which wasn’t working?

I don’t know; I’ve passed that page now and finished the section without any more difficulty.

I have a feeling I was initially leaving a gap between the font-size number and the px, Like so:

<h1 style="color:green; font-size: 16 px"

which was maybe causing my problem. I’m not sure what I was doing wrong.

Thanks for any help.

yea, the gap between 16 and px is wrong, 16px is one argument, it can’t take any spaces, so that caused the problem, of course, retyping the entire thing can help

Thank you very much for your help!
