HTML FILE

	<title>Result</title>
</head>
<body>
	<h1>Change me to Verdana.</h1>
	<h3>Change me to Courier.</h3>
	<p>Make me purple!</p>
</body>

STYLESHEET
/* still getting the error :s */

h1 {
font-family: Verdana;
}
h3 {
font-family: Courier;
}
p{
color: purple;
}

<do not remove the three backticks above>

nevermind, i just noticed i didnt put the “/” at the end of the tag. haven’t even seen it in previous excercises since i wasn’t asked for it before.

It is xml syntax, most of the times you won’t need it.
