Is this a problem, or not?

I'm not sure if this is a problem or not; I have to have done it right, because when I hit save & submit it, it tells me to go to the next lesson. Well, my "problem" is that when I type in the back up for the p tag, it switches to serif, even though Garamond works on my computer.
Here's the code:

h1 {
font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;
color: #576D94;

p {
font-family: Garamond, serif;
font-size: 18px;
color: #4A4943;


So is this normal, or am I not doing something right, or what?

Good catch. I've got the same problem, I'm not sure what's causing it. If you want to report it in the Buggy Exercises group and see what they say, that might be a good idea.


Codecademy Groups no longer exist, ignore that link.

I know this might be a stupid question, but do I join the group and start a discussion, or do I find a discussion that's already there, or what?

Don't feel stupid, everyone has to learn somehow :-). You can create a discussion yourself, or else I will, and you can look at it and see how to do it for yourself :-). I did a search myself, and I didn't find anything, so it's fine to create a discussion.

Good Day Dr.Sonigir, try to add font-family: Garamond,serif; AFTER color PROPERTY, maybe in this way works. Cheers
