Tell us what’s happening:
I dont understand why I need to put “h2{font-family:}” infront of “h2 {font-family: Lobster, Monospace;}” to make it work.

Can somebody explain? It doesnt make sense to me at all.

Your code so far

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<style>
  .red-text {
    color: red;
  }
  <!-- Use Monospace if Lobster is not available -->
h2{font-family:}

h2 {font-family: Lobster, Monospace;}
  p {font-size: 16px;
    font-family: Monospace;}
</style>

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>

<p class="red-text">Kitty ipsum dolor sit amet, shed everywhere shed everywhere stretching attack your ankles chase the red dot, hairball run catnip eat the grass sniff.</p>
<p class="red-text">Purr jump eat the grass rip the couch scratched sunbathe, shed everywhere rip the couch sleep in the sink fluffy fur catnip scratched.</p>

What do you exactly mean bro?


#3

Oh yeah! actually it’ll work without that h2{font-family:} since it doesnt do anything! plus you have your font family set after it which makes it useless even if it has its own value!


#4

Yeah it should work but it doesnt. Only when I add the h2{font-family:} infornt of my code, it works but I dont understand why.


#5

Try removing that second declaration and give the first h2 declaration the value Lobster, Monospace instead! Maybe its a bug or something! Im a newbie, are you as well? ive just joined an hour or two ago!


#6

Yes I’m fairly new. Just started the Codecamp.
I do know some Python tho. Imma just leave it like that since its working. Thanks for your help mate!


#7

No problem! Hope there’ll be answer for this question… Bit creepy! LoL!

First of all welcome ^^
Copy pasting your code seems you used the wrong syntax to comment out “use monospace if …”: since you’re into the <style></style> section you should use /* */ to wrap a comment ; i don’t know why it works with that snippet , probably it elides itself with the comment :open_mouth:
