Still trying to css this header

You need to add the red-text class in the existing <h2> element. Then in your styles, add a rule for the red-text class to make it red.

ok but i thought that was inline


#4

Inline styles refer to putting the CSS code in the element itself (like <h2 style="color:red">I am red</h2>). Adding classes to an HTML element is not the same as adding inline styles. Then in your stylesheet, you can put CSS rules to style elements with a certain class, as you’ll do with this challenge.

There should be a <style> element in this challenge’s initial code. Did you remove it by any chance?

Also, red text should be red-text. Otherwise, it will be interpreted as two classes red and text.

And to style classes, you add this to your stylesheet. Notice the . at the beginning.

.class-name {
  property: value;
}
