16/21 Does not work.

So I did everything it asked me to, all the previous ones passed, but this simple font size is proving to not be so simple. Here's my input up to this point-

    text-align: center;
   background: url(;
   background-size: cover;
   background-position: center center;
   background-repeat: no-repeat;
   background-attachment: fixed;
   color: black;
   font-family: Helvetica; 
p {
    font-size: 24px;
<img src=""

Hi Jesse, I don't see anything wrong with your code except for the missing > on the end of your logo img tag.

What error message are you getting?

It say "Oops, try again. "Make a new "p { font-size: 24px; }" rule instead of putting it in the "body" rules." But I clearly have that there and right in the right spot just like the HINT shows you to do.

Hi Jesse, I've tested your code on Chrome and it passes without any fuss. I would suggest taking a copy of your code then experiment with some combination of using the Reset code button and reloading the web page.

Never mind, it changed the font size in the paragraph just doesn't recognize that its right. i can start the next task, but it just wont give me credit for it.

I read on another post for commonly found bugs that said sometimes it might work if code academy is run on a different browser. I run it on Google chrome and that worked for me.
