Font Size Problems? Check Here First!

Hi everyone,

I’ve seen a lot of confusion surrounding exercises 2 and 3 in HTML Basics II > Styling the font! I want to be clear that the problem isn’t related to these SCTs, but the error messages haven’t exactly been the clearest, so I’ve updated them to clarify some hard-to-spot errors.

If you nest your <p> or <h1> tags incorrectly, like this:

<h1 <h1 style="...">Text</h1>
<h1> <h1 style="...">Text</h1>
<p <p style="...">Text</p>
<p> <p style="...">Text</p>

Instead of correctly, like this:

<h1 style="...">Text</h1>
<p style="...">Text</p>

You’ll see the correct output in the live preview (that is, the font size or color will change appropriately), but the exercise won’t pass you because your HTML is syntactically incorrect. The SCTs in these particular exercises have been updated to alert you if they detect improper nesting, which should help the issue.

If you find you’re getting a really weird font-size reported back to you, such as 18.1818181818px, the problem is that your browser’s zoom needs to be reset. If you type ⌘-0 (on a Mac—that’s the command key and the 0 key together) or Ctrl-0 on a PC, that should reset your zoom. You can also do this in most browsers by going up to “View” and selecting “Reset” or “Actual Size.”

Hope this helps!

Edit: I have seen some reports of browsers that automatically resize fonts below 9 or 10px, so exercises have been updated with a floor of 10px.

I think there is a bug in the system. I tried this code...

   <h1 style="color:green;font-size:16px">Big Heading</h1>
        <p style="color:violet">A giant bear and a little duck were friends.</p>
        <p style="color:red;font-size:10px">But the bear got hungry and ate the duck.</p>

Tried it in firefox and chrome both, refresh zoom, reload, reset. Always got an error saying either my heading looked like 32 px or was supposed to make the heading green. Finally, I removed everything between the body tags <body> </body>  and got **That's Correct!**

What does impact mean? I have a problem in excercise 4 getting the third list, which saysChange the font size of the third listed item to 10px and the font to Impact. Make sure to capitalize Garamond, Verdana, and Impact as shown” but what impact are we talking about? I got the code right

what do you mean removed everything between the tags? I believe I have done that but it still doesn’t work. Can someone please clarify?

codeSlayer65235 over 9 years

I think the explanation is flawed in this lesson. He uses the example of of href tags, but href tags inside a paragraph are thus:

Text Linked text

(At least this worked for me.) This makes you think you have to put a full

before <p, which is not the case.
He shows you an example of how not to code it without a example of the complete correct code.

DerAndere over 9 years

Definitely a bug if you ask me. I tried it over and over again in Opera 12.15 and it didn’t work. I pasted the exact same code to a new tab in Firefox and passed immediately. Well, maybe it’s Opera’s fault?! On the other hand: If people are also having probs with Chrome…

tetsu.k over 9 years

Awesome! Thanks for the solution. Anyone at Codecademy that can fix this bug?

guduren over 9 years

I find another reason for the problem of a really weird font-size reported is the chrome set a min and max font-size it support if your font-size is out of the range the browser will adjust itself so you can reset the min and the max level in setting

outbackxi over 9 years

Crazy. Removing everything within the body really did let me pass. I had been racking my brain for days. Thanks a lot for the tip.

Roy Fullard over 9 years

The system is telling me that my font is 16px and it should be 12px but it is set for 12px. This is what I have:

  • This item is big Garamond.

  • This item is medium Verdana.

  • This item is small Impact.

  • I had an error saying my font was 16px but should be 16px!! Like outbackxi said removing the body lets you pass..

    Nathaniel Wyatt over 9 years

    Thank you so much! My code is correct, but it will not accept it!!! Thanks again for such a life saver!

    There is a mistake in this code after : font-size: 16px”> I guess it should be font-size: 16px;”> is missing a semicolon try to check it.

    In the code “color: green” you cannot have the WORD color in the code. You only need the actual color.

    sometimes, if you change the font size of your browser, the size of the screen will be NOT TURE. you can 1.reset the font size in browser settings 2.zoom in/out the screen and try Save & Submit Code again

    Go to your browser’s settings and make sure in the font settings that your minimum font setting is set to 10px… if not then change it, save & go back to the code. It should pass you then!

    for me the problem was different, i had changed the color of the

    Big heading

    to green but along with the heading the paragraph under it also turns green. And then when i change the color of the paragraphs they change it. So it did not accept my code. That’s because i followed the example on the left side by the author. Which said :

    but i believe that’s wrong you should put a or a

    at the end otherwise its detected wrong.

    It works after i followed the correct code from Eric Weinstein, i.e

    Colten over 9 years

    You have some spacing errors. I had the same problem until I corrected my coding with the following:

    A giant bear and a little duck were friends.

    But the bear got hungry and ate the duck.

    So just fix your spacing and it should accept your code.

    Colten over 9 years

    Note: I didn’t indent so don’t copy/paste

    tim mullins over 9 years

    Thanks Maerik; I do post code occasionally. Lol Colten; My spacing should have passed. The problem is if your browser font-size is not at a compatible setting, it wouldn’t let you pass.

    Have decided not to comment anymore, but just let me say congrats on getting this many votes, and I like you’re picture. It reminds me of Kootra, who has this character named Caticus Meowicus(Mount and Blade: Warband; YouTube series).

The only way it worked was to carriage the original line above it down and insert my new code on the line above the supposed line where I was asked to insert the code.

    Derek Goss about 9 years

    For those of you having the problems where your code is correct but not changing the size - what worked for me was putting a dash between font and size - so it would look like: style= “font-size: 12” instead of : style= “font size: 12”

    张鑫 about 9 years

    worked for me too!genius!haha

    Thanks!

    Patience Miller about 9 years

    I had the same problem and I guess you jsut resolved it.

    Derek Goss about 9 years

    Denise- I believe you should put a dash regardless of what browser you’re using. In general, when not writing things such as headers, paragraphs, etc., you should use dashes instead of spaces (i.e. font-size, font-family, inline-block, margin-left, etc.)

    tim mullins about 9 years

    good point dcgoss! I don’t think html will work without the dash in those objects.

    Derek Goss about 9 years

    @Jiji Rentsch, it appears to me that you are forgetting the colon between font-size and your value (i.e. “font-size: 16px” as opposed to “font-size 16px”). Give that a shot and see if it helps. If not - I’m here all week;)

    Emily Garon about 9 years

    I’m sorry for intruding but I’m having the same problem and I used a colon… Here’s my code:

    Emily Garon about 9 years

    NEVERMIND!!! I got it! You have to erase everything though… it’s rather sill but codecademy accepts it all… it’s a pain but it’s worth it :) onward with zeh lessons!

    Derek Goss about 9 years

    Glad that you solved it Emily, but I have an alternative solution that might be less of a hassle - if you copied that code directly from your lesson I believe that your problem may be as simple as spelling. You spelled font “fonr”! You also spelled font-family “font-famil”. Not totally sure about this one, but putting a space between your style type (font-family:, font-size:, etc.) and your value (12px, Verdana, etc.) may also resolve the issue. (i.e. font-size: 12px as opposed to font-size:12px)

    Derek Goss about 9 years

    Sorry, my example at the end got cut-off. It should be (i.e. font-size: 12px as opposed to font-size:12px). Notice the space! haha

    I’m also getting this “Oops, try again.

I’ve also zoomed in and out, reset the zoom and cursed silently in my head. If I begin hurling invectives out loud, should that do the trick? I don’t want to frighten people…

    If the

    It’s not buggy. You guys are just overlooking your own mistakes.

    Tips: Make sure you don’t add a

    before

    because p style already accounts for your paragraph. As well, make sure you are using equals signs in the right places, and semi colons in the right places font-size is always followed by a semi-colon, while style is always followed by an equal sign

    Also make sure you use ‘px’ after your font size

    “Some text for you to make tiny!”> “ Remove this “ ; “ at the end of “ 10 px” due that its preventing your text to changing size.

    For all people who don’t want to read it al this stuff cause there are a lot of comments. :D

    Please check your code again. Even spaces can sometimes mess it up. Maybe your zoom of your browser is not proper configurated fix this by holding the control button and your mousewheel or the plus or minus button.

    Also other people see the solution in deleting some parts well it is perfectly possible to write the code without deleting parts. :D If still everything fails see the code below. Or copy the code from the instructions and addapt the code :D

    Right code:

    anil yadav over 9 years

    First, thank you Diana. Why don’t they make it this simple with the instructions? Even the ‘hint’ at FONT SIZE, 02/05 is a repeat of the instructions! More about what ‘not-to-do,’ rather ‘what-to-do’!The experts can code alright, but spectacularly fail with the explanation and instructions.

    Tennyson McCalla over 9 years

    Bingo. Diana and anil hit the nail on the head here. For better pedagogy here don’t include the “what not to do” if it’s drastically different from the “what to do”, or else it isn’t helpful at all. Humans look to the mistakes to see what needs to be done. Spotting the mistake was more effort than it needed to be.

    A proper example should’ve included “what to do” as part of the initial code, like the ordered/unordered list lessons.

    hc333 over 9 years

    This was so helpful!!!!!!! I did not understand the answer to the problems that the hint and instructions proposed. Without this I would have had no idea

    big thanks! lesson wording needs rework, maybe? it’s the style attribute nested inside the “p” tag.

    ifaat about 9 years

    The lesson wording is confusing. Up to this point in the lesson excercise NO where does it say drop the opening tag or even SHOW an example of how the nestle tag would look. In previous lessons their were examples. So, to assume that all of the sudden an opening tag will not be need is confusing for the user. No where else did we drop an opening tag so why think you would do this now!?

    holyromanempire about 9 years

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Joshua Bennett almost 9 years

    So I don’t mean to be a stickler but are you trying to tell me that <p style accounts for two openings in one commands and yet I still have to close style and paragraph with two separate commands? This seams totally confusing when the cardinal rule is to open and close everything?!?

    Dave Ellis almost 9 years

    noelboudreauxgmail.com almost 9 years

    Very confusing it took me forever to figure it out. I thought

    was a command by it self like the img tags, but it is combining two commands together. It is combining

    with style tag to get <p style, so you have to delete the auto

    tag the is set on the default lesson. Yes I agree, they don’t tell you it is two tags, they explain it like they do every other tag as independent and don’t mention that seemingly small detail which makes a HUGE difference. The worst part about it, it because it is a small but exponentially important detail, it is hard to even understand what you are doing wrong. I hope they fix it.

    Well there is another post somewhere, where i found the answer. Try the code below - it worked for me. I think there is some kind of bug. Notice the <li is removed from some of the tag.

    I did not give up. Re did it with the idea that we will get it to recognize that it is 16px and then convert with a 10px and it worked. This is what I did to fix the bug loop: 

  • This item is medium Verdana.
  • This item is small Impact.
  •  You will need to do this to the third line as well because the bug will loop that too. Good Luck

    On this section 02/05 of html using the style attribute

    Despite the advice about not nesting incorrectly, I didn’t understand at first that the style attribute was added to the p-tag and not a seperate tag. May I suggest that it might make it easier for some people (like me) if you explain that the style attribute ie style = “font-size: 12px” is included in the original p-tag. I’m sure most people might realise this straight away but I thought it was added as another tag - rather foolish of me now I come to think about it but could cause a newbie like me some confusion Just a thought

    Hey guys; I can understand your frustration. I went through the same lesson and finally passed! As for demanding better teachers… remember this is free stuff. Some things I wish that they would explain better, but you can’t always get what you want. I am glad to get what I get! lol

    I really just mean that the course gives you one teacher.. you get used to him… you understand him.. you pass the unit jump into another he’s gone and heres a new guy you don’t understand. I’ve had teachers fired before, but going through multiple teachers and teaching styles is too difficult to do every other unit. Not to meantion free doesn’t mean bad quality. Youtube’s free to watch yet theres lots of good stuff there.

    I am on the first lesson with font size. I have done every troubleshoot listed in this thread. My code is absolutely correct but my preview does not reflect the code I have inserted. Instead, all my font is 10px, which is the floor I set it at within Chrome’s settings. Does anyone have any other ideas how to get my browser to work with this? It’s not my tags or syntax for the code. Thank you.

    I nested mine correctly, and it keeps telling me “whoops! did you use 10px in your first paragraph? it looks like 12px…” (or something like that). I don’t know where the frick 12px came from, but I definitely have the tags correctly nested and I am using the right font-sizes!

    it says to use 10px, 20px, and 40px and those are the three font-sizes I used for the three paragraphs, so wtf man.

    pretty please help me.

    Because your browser default settings is 12px, you just reset your browser zoom >=150% by pressing “ctrl +”.

    Great post!

    A note stating “style tags are placed inside the opening tag and are not separate” would have clarified the subject and made it less awkward. At first I thought they were separate opening and closing tags added to the paragraph tag.

    In the second exercise,I think that the confusion comes from mentioning the problems of nesting. This wording is leading people to try and nest a second paragraph tag in each line when they normally would have correctly just edited the first tag. I know that’s the mistake I made. My suggestion for the lesson would be to point out that an attribute is part of a logical argument or tag not an additional argument or tag.

    However, even though learning syntax is confusing, I have found that doing something wrong and banging your head extensively for a period of time is one of the best ways to learn even though it hurts a bit.

    HTML Basics II, exercise 10/16.

    My code for the other examples are fine (

  • This item is big Garamond.
  • ).

    But the second line keeps giving me errors (“Oops, try again! It looks like your second

  • ‘s font-size is 16px instead of 12px.”)
  • I tried:

    1) changing the zoom on my browser 2) deleting everything between the tags 3) deleting the

    tags 4) deleting the
  • tags

    Nothing works :( I can’t move on without this course.

    Brianna, I think the problem is a : after font-size. I passed with this code:

  • This item is big Garamond.
  • This item is medium Verdana.
  • This item is small Impact.
  • Brianna Paige about 9 years

    Thanks, but I tried that and it still didn’t work. I even tried copying and pasting everything over again and it still has the same font size error.

    Brianna Paige about 9 years

    I tried copying and pasting your code into Chrome and it gave me the same error.

    tim mullins about 9 years

    The font-size issue is the major problem and mainly caused by the font size settings in your browser. There are several post about that on this page so I don’t want to repeat. (This page is getting lengthy!) You can also try a different browser.

    I had the same issue in the font size lessons in HTML Basic II. I followed every possible solution in the forum but I still got the error saying my font size is 12px instead of 10px. I’m always using the Actual Size so something else should be fixed.

    Go to Settings in Chrome, then Show Advanced Settings, Web Contents, Customize Fonts. Here, change the minimum font size to 10px, and all my problems with the exercises are now gone.

    Other browsers should have similar settings about the minimum font size. Hope this helps.

    This is the first module I’ve had issues with. I believe the problem lies in the instruction of this section, not in error reporting. All previous sections were very clear, with concise examples and instruction. Though this section does mention nesting, and shows examples of incorrect nesting, it does not specify how to complete the nesting correctly to achieve the desired results. It took me entirely way too long before I realized it was nested WITHOUT a prior (p) tag - this is confusing and should be clarified as it is quite different from previous nesting examples in other modules (<p with <a href, etc)

    Silly me I spelled style wrong in this line:
    li style=”font-size:12px;font-family:Verdana”

    so it would keep telling me that you have size 16 instead of 12. So make you sure you spell everything correctly!

    I’m working on my laptop with a screen resolution of 1366*768 and a Chrome in Win 8.1

    When I re-sized the font I noticed the editor recognized my font as 12px instead of 10px. However, when I zoomed in (instead of zoomed out) to 150% simply with “ctrl” + “+/=”, the code passed.

    So my suggestion is you may try zooming in/out in both directions to see if it works.

    ==========================

    My guess is that the this page was programmed on a Mac with retina display (resolution=2048*1536) .

  • to the font Verdana?”
  • When I rewrite it to Verdana (instruction in the left says me it should be Arial), I got the next error:

    “Did you remember to change the first

  • to the font Arial?”
  • It would be fun but I only can cry.

    I think the reason of font-size error is that Chrome’s default minx font-size is 12px, therefor the excersizes ask for 10px setting is really unconvienient.

    So this problem has been going on for months and the only solution Codecademy has offered is “make sure you’re not nesting your tags improperly”. That’s NOT THE PROBLEM, folks. These continual font problems make the HTML lessons useless.
