CSS class not registering to HTML element

Tell us what’s happening:

The CSS class .pink-text is not registering to the html element as the font color remains green instead of changing to pink. As far as i can tell the code is written correctly.

Your code so far

body {
  background-color: black;
  font-family: monospace;
  color: green;

.pink-text {
  color: pink;
<h1 class:"pink-text">Hello World!</h1>

Challenge: Prioritize One Style Over Another

Link to the challenge:

a = 16;

would set a to hold a value of 16

class : "pink-text

would just say there is a class and a pink text
so would the next time we call it hold pink text?

.pink-text {
  color: pink;

You have a typo here…it wouldn’t be a colon when setting the attribute name to something
