8/26 impossible to pass as I don't have Garamond font

I know that my CSS is correct as if I change the font to something I do have like Arial, it shows in the preview but because I don't have the Garamond font it won't let me pass, it just says that I haven't changed the font correctly.

I have the same problem and the code is that:

p {
font-family: Garamond;
font-size: 16px;

check here how to format your code. Your code is currently not visible. if you update your question please leave a comment so i get a notification.
If you put your code i a comment, i am going to ask you to redo it, and use proper format.

Can you provide some code? So i can check it is correctly. Codecademy uses google font api, so the font will be provided by the website.

I have exactly the same problem. I have:

p {
color: green;
font-family: Garamond;
font-size: 24px;

And then I get the error message:

Oops, try again. It looks like your paragraph isn't in the font Garamond.

I get the hint:

Make sure to capitalize Garamond as shown!

Can somebody help me out here?

Okay, I am sorry. I was a little too quick to ask my question here. I cleared my Firefox cache with CTRL+F5 and reset the code. Then I typed the same code again and then it did work. Is there a logical explanation for this? Thanks!

good you figured it out. The most logic explanation is that there was a miscommunication between your pc and codecademy server. It could be your browser was sending cached/wrong data to codecademy
