This week: Making it Nice.
In the last lesson, we used Grid and Flexbox to layout our FAQ page. We also added media queries to allow the content to display nicely on all screen sizes.

In this lesson, we're going to add more styles to our FAQ page. This means fonts, colors, underlines, backgrounds, and anything else you can think of! You'll need to do a lot of studying and browsing for this lesson, in order to learn about the different things you can do with CSS.
