Confusing claim of previously having explained inline styling

The exercise states, "We previously showed you how to do inline styling with HTML, like so (...)"

In reality, the previous exercise only makes a passing reference to it - one that doesn't mention the term "inline styling" and doesn't explain the concept.

Therefore, the above is confusing.

I know realize that the reference in the exercise may have been to the HTML course rather than to another exercise in the same course.

There are other instances where the HTML course is referenced without explicitly saying so (e.g., in section "Selecting HTML Elements", exercise 1.)

For the benefit of those who did not start out with the HTML course, it may be helpful to give more context for those reference; perhaps add a link to the relevant exercise in the other course.

They're all under the same course, called "HTML & CSS for Beginners". Hence references to past lessons; they are all connected, with HTML being step 1 through 3, and CSS being step 4 through 6.

Hello guys, if you passed the first lessons, it means that you already have this knowkedge in your minds, if for you it's difficult to remember i suggest you to have a pice of paper where you can take notes about the information. So in this way you'll be applying what you've learnt before. Cheers
