[resolved] 23/26 says Oops, try again. Don't forget to set your h1 font to Verdana!

Hi everyone,
here is what i have so far in CSS and then the HTML...

h1 {
    font-family: Verdana;
    color: #586D94;
}

p {
    font-size: 18px;
    color: #4A4943;
}

and now the HTML...

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <link-type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
            <title>Result</title>
    </head>
        <body>
        <h1>Praise the Lord</h1>
    <p>For He is worthy of our praise</p>
    </body>
    </html>

I think i have everything right and it will not let me pass says:
Oops, try again. Don't forget to set your h1 font to Verdana!.
I am not sure what to do next.
Thanks

Hi Caleb, the error message you are seeing is being caused by the - that you have here: link-type.

this is supposed to be the right answer

Thanks for the quick response. It appears I only got one number wrong. Still the same "OOPS" message. Any other ideas? I will try to post my HTML again. It looks like It didn't work right. I can't get it to show up correctly. I am almost positive it is right.

No, I never did figure it out. I just bit the bullet and moved on to the next lesson or section even if it would not acknowledge I did it right. It did ruin my 13 day streak though but I figured I am on here to learn and not to earn streaks. Even if it will never acknowledge i finished the course I learned everything in the course and that is what I think matters.
Hope that helps:)
God bless,

I believe there is a bug in the "OOPS" finder part of the website. I tried contacting Codecademy but they do not have very good customer service so don't no if the'll reply or not. You are probably doing it right.

I'm sorry I don't. When I run your code with the color code corrected and the - changed into a space it gives me a pass.
