How can I complete this exercise when I don't have a cursive font on my PC.

How can I ever complete this course? Even when I skip step 16/26 because it won't recognize that it has actually been completed, because of the missing font. Whenever I exit the course, and then continue the course using the continue button, it brings me back to this step. I have to scroll down and click on the actual section that I was last working on when I left off. I have completed INTRODUCTION TO CSS and other sections after it, but it only shows "CSS: An Overview" as 96% complete because of step 16/26. I probably will never be able to complete this entire course because of that one step.

What operating system are you running? Can we examine your CSS, please?

Windows 8.1

//Add your CSS below!*/
h1 {font-family:serif;}
h2 {font-family:sans-serif;}
h3 {font-family:cursive serif;}

Note, I tried with cursive only first, then added the serif; just to see if that might get by. The odd thing is the message complains about the h1 header.
"Oops, try again. Did you remember to set your header font-family to serif?"

Nevermind. I removed the comment and it worked.

or fixed the comment I should have said. I'm not sure how the extra /* got in there, but that seemed to fix it.

The correct form of this would be a comma separated list: font-family: cursive, serif; For the exercise, it needs only read, font-family:cursive;. But you're past all this now. so bravo! Happy coding!

Strange that the colors for the font-family and the fonts selected were not greyed out. only the "cursive" was greyed out, but when I removed the "/" of the "//*" prefix of the comment, it passed.

I had the same issue. It does not work at all using internet explorer but when I did it in google chrome even though it did not recognize the font it at least let me pass the section.
