Challenge: Specify How Fonts Should Degrade

Link to the challenge:

Hello there,
You do not need to comment the google font API. You need to add another font options for the h2 element like this:

p {
  font-family: Helvetica, sans-serif;

@reidygeoff45, you correctly commented out the call to the Google font however, you were tasked with adding adding monospace as a fallback.
Revisit the lesson, you were not to delete anything from the font-family.

The failing message tells you this. It reads
Your h2 element should use the font Lobster. Your h2 element should degrade to the font monospace when Lobster is not available.

To begin, apply the monospace font to the h2 element, so that it now has two fonts - Lobster and monospace .

In the last challenge, you imported the Lobster font using the link tag. Now comment out that import of the Lobster font (using the HTML comments you learned before) from Google Fonts so that it isn’t available anymore. Notice how your h2 element degrades to the monospace font.

I can’t see where I have deleted anything. I have got h2 {

font-family: Lobster; monospace;


you used a semicolon between the two types of fonts, you need to use a comma instead.
like this: font-family: Lobster, monospace;
