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?

Ceadef5ed002ffd0489908f914417916?s=140&d=retro codeSlayer65235 over 3 years ago

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.

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...

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

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.

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

Now it's 106. People apparently like your coding. You should post more solutions to coding things...

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.

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.

HI, I think the way they explaining nesting in this lesson is more confusing than most, given that the correct examples provided don't actually finish the nest (it just gives this... ... which doesn't show what to do with the text. If it had your complete correct example above, that would probably lessen a lot of the confusion. Thanks!

There are bugs all throughout the system. on lesson 12 of HTML basicsIII, It asked to add a tag and insert a box with the . It would not work no matter what zoom or reset I did. 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. Then it worked...nothing typed any differently because I copied and pasted it all...definitely a bug in the system with the fonts, px sizes.

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"

53793634631fe9b0bd00488a_628478289 Derek Goss almost 3 years ago

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.)

@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;)

53793634631fe9b0bd00488a_628478289 Derek Goss almost 3 years ago

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)

53793634631fe9b0bd00488a_628478289 Derek Goss almost 3 years ago

Alrighty then. It is telling me that my 10px looks like 16px but when I do ctrl -0 nothing happens. I use Firefox. It also doesn't do anything if I do ctrl and the scrolly thing on my mouse, which is how I usually zoom in and out. Solutions? Also all my fonts look the same size.
Thanks!

I'm also getting this "Oops, try again. It looks like your header's font-size is 32px instead of 16px." I've reset the code about ten times and though I CAN possibly be stupid enough to type in the wrong code every single time, I doubt everyone else with this problem is typing in the wrong code, too. 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 and tags are left in the code the change in font size is not recognized. That is, you can change the font size for the text to be 16px, 12px, and 10px respectively, but the ordered list number (1., 2., and 3.) are not affected size-wise, which seems to yield the error.

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"

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

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:

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.

C0278f17f22a49712de5dcba0e88f8e2?s=140&d=retro Tennyson McCalla about 3 years ago

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.

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

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!?

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?!?

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 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.

Hope it helps:

Ditto here. Moving on to the next lesson. There must be a bug

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

Make sure you have ";" at the end of each "px" to close out the px for that line. Good luck.

There are bugs all throughout the system. on lesson 12 of HTML basicsIII, It asked to add a tag and insert a box with the . It would not work no matter what zoom or reset I did. 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. Then it worked...nothing typed any differently because I copied and pasted it all...definitely a bug in the system with the fonts, px sizes.

I was having a similar problem, but mine was with the larger text. There isn't a maximum size in Chrome's settings. I ended up copying and pasting the code from my middle section and replacing the unresponsive code. I double checked it out several different times... no noticeable difference. This worked, though!

Try setting everything like this:
<!DOCTYPE html>


Loving the font changes


Big title

This item is big Garamond.
This item is medium Verdana.
This item is small Impact.



It worked for me.

Haodong, how exactly do you "zoom the web browser and reset the browser font setting"?.......I'm having problem with this exercise that may be helped by doing what you say to do, but I do not know how to do as you say.....

514f7dd4618041461e001071_74634919 tim mullins about 3 years ago

Hey Mark, In Chrome click on customize and control Google Chrome in the upper right corner, click on settings, in the search box... type 'fonts', click customize fonts and move the Standard font bar to about size 12. I think this is what others have meant. Hope it helps.

Guys DON'T FORGET to add "hyphen" between font and size like this "font-size".

I think there is a problem with the way they coded the exercises, or maybe something happened to the site. There are too many size problems to be a single accident.

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

Maybe it would be a good idea to update the lesson to teach us how to actually nest it correctly because telling me whats wrong doesn't teach whats right. DONT STEAL CANDY FROM BABIES... so i can steal it from adults? Thats what your giving me I DONT GET IT TEACH BETTER OR GIVE US A BETTER TEACHER FOR THE COURSE. sorry for raging because codeacademy is stomping on all my dreams and my schedule too.

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

51a7695f3e0ef4d551001ace_987365706 Aero09 over 3 years ago

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 have a similar problem on the font-family exercise. I've rechecked all the entries and they are correct, but the tutorial keeps telling me the second line size is wrong and does not register any of the changes in the view window. I've insert the style info into other exercises and it worked fine. The program will not show that as "Complete" only as "Started".

The instructions says to make the second li 12px which i have but the error says I have input 16px - which i have not.

I had this to begin with.

    <p style = "font-size: 10 px"> Some text for you to make tiny! </p>

etc.

then I took out the space between "10" and "px".

My problem was fixed like this:

<p style = "font-size: 10 px"> Some text for you to make tiny! </p>

Many of us forget to add the "-" between font and size.

If you are working on a Mac with safari as the browser, go to preferences, advanced, universal access ----- and make sure that the box which states that fonts less than 10 (or another value) is not checked

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.

Why we always get error it is because our Chrome's font size at least at 12px ! My English was bad but I hope I'm pass on this message to you! GOOD LUCK !

Try re-typing the code. I was just reading this and was having trouble with the sizes. Also try adding a couple of spaces in between this : and the number you are using.

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.

Hey,
I think my code has something wrong with it but I don't know what. It looks just how it should but it won't pass through here it is:
<!DOCTYPE html>


First font size change


Some text for you to make tiny!
Some text for you to make normal size!
Some text for you to make super big!


If you see something wrong tell me please.

I'd recommend the author revise this lesson to provide at least one solid example of using the code correctly before testing on it. I found the answer here, but even the "hint" doesn't tell us correct syntax. Just a thought...

Guys, if you are using Google Chrome and still have the problem of the font size, try to use CTRL + mouse wheel to make the font-size bigger enough(may need to repeat several times to make it pass)

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.

You need a colon between the attribute name "font-size" and the value "16px" (or 12px or 10px). So ... , etc

hey everyone! I have a good news for you :) I think somebody also use Chrome but it get erorr in the font-size 10px... but don worry ! you can go to your setting and adjust the font size to become 10! Why we always get error it is because our Chrome's font size at least at 12px ! My English was bad but I hope I'm pass on this message to you! GOOD LUCK !

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.

I deleted everything between the body tags. I'm not sure why it went through but it did. You have us change color and font size, but the only way to pass that area is to not do anything???? A bit strange, isn't it? Please fix this bug.

Whoever is using Chrome might want to check their custom font settings. The minimum font size must, obviously, be 10 or smaller.

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.

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.

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

514f7dd4618041461e001071_74634919 tim mullins almost 3 years ago

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:

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) .

Hello, I am at HTML II Basics 8. Front size.
It keeps saying this:
Oops, try again. Did you set the first paragraph's font-size to 10px? It looks like it's 16px.
This is my code:

<body>
        <p style="front-size: 10px"> Some text for you to make tiny!</p> 
        <p style="front-size: 20px"> Some text for you to make normal size!</p>
        <p style="front-size: 40px"> Some text for you to make super big!</p>
</body>

I have already done the Crtl+0 thing. I use Google Chrome browser by the way.
What's wrong with my code?

I fixed the problem with the first one by changing the settings in Chrome, but now the second one is also 10 px...

On both Chrome and Firefox I managed not to be allowed to use 16px. It refuses to change the font. I have reset the code a few times. It still will not pass me.

In the settings of Chrome, I found there's a Minimum Font to be set 12px. OMG, that's why I can not pass the 10px to this excersize! I changed the Minimum Font to be 10px. ;)

hey everyone! I have a good news for you :) I think somebody also use Chrome but it get erorr in the font-size 10px... but don worry ! you can go to your setting and adjust the font size to become 10! Why we always get error it is because our Chrome's font size at least at 12px ! My English was bad but I hope I'm pass on this message to you! GOOD LUCK !

aha, finally, I got through. Chrome, need to customize the font-size of explorer. on the right-top of chrome, click the menu and select set , then unfold the advances, customize the font-size of web content, Standard font-size for 12px, minx font-size for 10px. then submit. My codes below

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Loving the font changes</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <h1>Big title</h1>
         <ol>
            <li style="font-family: Garamond; font-size:16px">This item is big Garamond.</li>
            <li style="font-family: Verdana; font-size:12px">This item is medium Verdana.</li>
            <li style="font-family: Impact; font-size:10px">This item is small Impact.</li>
         </ol>
    </body>
</html>

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.

I thank you!! I just copied and pasted what you wrote above. It worked. Even though, I had "typed" everything the same and came up with the "Oops, try again! It looks like your second 's font-size is 16px instead of 12px."
So the solution for me was to copy and paste the above!

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.
