HTML Basics II: 10 Font Family

Hey there

I’m stuck on section 10: Font Family.

<!DOCTYPE html>
		<title>Loving the font changes</title>
		<h1 style="font-family: Arial">Big title</h1>
		 	<li>style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Arial"</li>
		 	<li> style="font-size:12px; font-family: Verdana"</li>
		 	<li>style="font-size: 10px; font-family: Impact"</li>

It keep on saying “Oops, try again. It looks like your second

  • font-size is 16px instead of 12px.” whats the deal???
  • when you have a list item:

    <li>i am a list item</li>

    you add the style attribute to the list opening tag, which means the style attribute is before the > of the list opening tag:

    <li style="">i am a list item</li>

    you might want to reset, since you removed the text from inside the list

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

    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

    Thanks, just fixed it but the info is good to have for next time

    What I need to change or add ,I have same info!?? And I try do to like this :

    <li style="font-family: Arial""font-size: 16px">This item is big Arial.</li>
    <li style="font-family:Verdana""font-size: 12px">This item is medium Verdana.</li>
    <li style="font-family: Impact""font-size: 10px">This item is small Impact.</li> 

    And refresh ,and again is a same !

    the style attribute runs till the second quotation mark, which in your case is here:

    <li style="font-family: Arial"

    if you want multiply propertys + values you can just separate them by a semi-colon:

    <p style="property1: value1; property2: value2">

    2 posts were split to a new topic: Font family (10)

    Mine says: Oops, try again. Did you remember to change the first

  • to the font Arial?
    But I don’t really get what i did wrong,any tips?
  • you miss a colon after font-family property, if you need more help, make a new topic
