CSS Question

Paragraph Span Class and h3 Are The Same Hex Code, But Are Showing Up As Different Colors

For elements in my #vocational div, I want the h3 and the span class for my paragraphs to be the same color.

Essentially, what I have displayed in my #vocational div is a series of tweets. I want the hashtags and the name and @username of the tweet owners to be the same exact color, but even though the hex code is the same they are showing up as different colors.

Why is this? Should I be using paragraph for what I'm using h3 for? What could I do to make the colors the same?

Example of What I'd Like the #vocational div to look like:

Answer

Its of the same color as of <h3>, the difference is in the font-weight.

<h3> has font-weight: bold;, while

.hashtag has font-weight: normal;


Use bold font on .hashtag:

.hashtag {
  font-weight: bold;
}

Have a look at the snippet below:
