'Your h2 element should be blue' but it is!

Tell us what’s happening:

I keep getting the error message

‘Your h2 element should be blue.’

All the other criteria have been met.

Sorry for such a basic question but I have looked over this 100 times and keep getting the same error despite the text in the preview window clearly being blue.

Your code so far


<style>
h2 { color:blue;}
</style>

you should do it h2 {
color: blue;
} a space after two dots

Welcome, james.

Your code passes for me. I suggest you do either of the following:

  1. Disable all extensions that have access to freeCodeCamp.
  2. Use a different browser. The recommended is the latest stable release of Chrome.

Hope this helps

that can be a solution tho ,

Thanks but I tried that.

Thanks for the validation! Glad to know I’m not going crazy.

I had a similar hunch. I was on Firefox then switched to Chrome and everything’s been working great.

Thanks again.
