FAQ

My font is not showing up

If you have added the font family rule to the correct element in your stylesheet, try adding some specificity.

When styling a logo link with the class of .logo, I might add the #header id if I was having problems with strong specificity.

header .logo {

font-family: ‘Six Caps’;
font-size: 1.5em; /* Adjustments to font sizes may be needed. */
}
