Basic Coding Question



  • Total Nube here. I am not sure why my p{ } format will not show color: red as a command. The video I am watching seems to be identical and it is working for him. I saved file as index.html and as an html file.

    "<!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>

    <head>
    <meta charset=“utf-8”/>
    <title>Introduction to CSS</title>
    <style type=“text/css”>
    p{
    color: red;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>

    <p> Style Me!</p>
    <p> Style Me!</p>

    </body>

    </html>"



  • This is a forum for the editor Notepad++, not whatever you happen to be using the editor for.

    However, that’s an easy one: stop using smart quotes. Changing your code to the following worked for me.

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    
    <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8"/>
    <title>Introduction to CSS</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    p {
    color: red;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <p> Style Me!</p>
    <p> Style Me!</p>
    
    </body>
    
    </html>
