a common mistake : not refreshed website

I save with Ctrl S and refresh with Ctrl R, but it doesn't work

This is easy to fix. Every time you test your HTML with your browser or IDE, it saves the cache. Therefore, it shows the previous work even if you update.

In order to fix this, you need to clean the cache. If you use your browser, go to tool -> internet option -> then clean the cache If you use IDE, do the same thing as the browser If you use the both browser and IDE, clean the cache with "CCleaner".

If you don't know about CCleaner, ask me.

Once you've saved your changes, an ordinary refresh (F5 on most browsers) will usually do the job.
