Use the strong Tag to Make Text Bold Does not work


I think the page is broken because it won’t “read” the tag that is wrapped around “Stanford University.”

The instructions are:
Wrap a strong tag around “Stanford University” inside the p tag.

I enclosed Standford University within

 <p>Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at **<strong>**Stanford University.**</strong>**</p> 

And yet, after “test code” is clicked, it returns an error.

What am I missing?

  h4 {
    text-align: center;
    height: 25px;
  p {
    text-align: justify;
  .links {
    text-align: left;
    color: black;
  .fullCard {
    width: 245px;
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    border-radius: 5px;
    margin: 10px 5px;
    padding: 4px;
  .cardContent {
    padding: 10px;
  .cardText {
    margin-bottom: 30px;
<div class="fullCard">
  <div class="cardContent">
    <div class="cardText">
      <p>Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at <strong>Stanford University.</strong></p>
    <div class="cardLinks">
      <a href="" target="_blank" class="links">Larry Page</a><br><br>
      <a href="" target="_blank" class="links">Sergey Brin</a>

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make easier to read.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.

The period should not be in the strong tags. Only “Stanford University”.

Thanks, Ariel! So does this apply to ALL punctuation in addition to a period? the strong tag will NOT bold question marks, quotes, exclamation, comma, etc.?

The problem isn’t that the strong tag doesn’t work on punctuation. It’s a matter of the test requirements. The instructions and the tests for this challenge specifically want “Stanford University” (and only that) inside the tag.
