Challenge: Specify How Fonts Should Degrade

Link to the challenge:

I think you were expected to give h2 a fallback font .

When I did the monospace; just remained black and wouldn’t load right

@William8 You has commented out the link to google font. And the challenge has asked you to apply the monospace font to the h2 element so that it now has two fonts - Lobster and monospace .
You must read the given information carefully and thoroughly.

I did that yet still doesn’t work

@William8 Did you delete the word Lobster?

when you make changes please repost your new code.

I have posted another help request with my current code on it.

.red-text { color: red; } h2{ font-family: Lobster; monospace; }

I just posted my new code and it still doesn’t work

@William8 Then just reset your code and write the ask code carefully.

@William8 And share your code. We are unable to help you out without seeing your new code.

You have a small syntax error. Have a look at the sample code again:

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