Css: Overview 5/26 Font size problem

Sometimes resetting my zoom with cmd-0 works but usually it does not. I tried to use Internet Explorer and Safari instead of my usual Chrome browser and neither of them worked to reset the size. Could someone help me? I always get into a groove going through lessons then get stuck on something dumb like a font size problem and it makes me not want to learn anymore.

Halp.

Lesson 5/26 appears to be broken. you can work around it by inserting inline css in addition to what the lesson asks for.
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
</style>
<title>Result</title>
</head>
<body>
<p style="font-size: 44px;">I want to be SIZE 44 font!</p>
</body>
</html>

Same problem here. I'm stuck with the font size, although I've been resetting the zoom with ctrl-o, tried another browser and same result :-(. Hope to finally getting to solve it!!
