Hi, you have an extra closing bracket here.

.wrap h1 {
	color: grey;}
#division2 p { 
 	color: green;

The first step to debugging should be validating your page and code.

Thank you 1000 times , I love you :blush:

I’m afraid I do not reciprocate, but you’re welcome :slight_smile: .

Please one more question. What is difference between these two expressions.

.loud span#angry em


.loud span #angry em

Both #angry are descendant of span , i mean , are inside of span

In the first example, you are selecting an <em> that is a child of <span id="angry"> (note that the span MUST have this ID because you have span#angry) and THAT span is a child of an element with class=“loud”. Example below:

<div class="loud">
  <span id="angry">

Note that this above example will not work for the 2nd CSS rule you have.

The second example is selecting an em that is a child of ANY ELEMENT that has the id=“angry”. This can be a span, OR IT CAN BE ANYTHING like a DIV or a TABLE or UL tag. Any sort of tag. Now, this id=“angry” element is a child of a <span> element, which is a child of a class=“loud” element. Example below:

<div class="loud">
    <b id="angry">

With that space between span and #angry, that means that the HTML element has an id=“angry”. Without it, “span #angry” is talking about two different elements.

I found that example in some tutorials, since it is audio and i am not english native speaker i couldnt figure out what it is for weeks :). Now it is all clear , thnxxxxxx , I am so happy now .

You’re busy being well grounded, smart.

I get it now! Don’t worry. I’ve had a few members/staff make jokes that I do not understand.

Either they aren’t funny or I’m terrible at recognizing good jokes when I see them :wink: .
