You don’t use HTML tags in CSS, you use selectors instead. So if you want to target a specific element, such as the body element, then the selector would just be the name of the element (body in this case). Just like in the current CSS selector:

h1, h2, p { ... }

This selector list is targeting all h1, h2, and p elements. No need to use the actual HTML tags for these elements, just the element names.
