I can not get this task correct because I do not understand what I have to download or how.

I clicked the download -- then what? Because it does not work just having it in a download folder.

In this task you need to download & link to normalize.css. A CSS stylesheet must be applied to your HTML by using the <link> tag, this tag will tell your browser to apply this external stylesheet.

How to add normalize.css:

  1. Go to normalize.css file from github
  2. Click the big green download button
  3. Save the file to your desktop
  4. Move the normalize.css file to the folder
  5. Create a link element that references css/normalize.css

This works the same way as the <a> element, by using the href attribute. This assumes of course that all of your css files are in a folder named css

If you need a little more help, check out the link tag page on HTML Dog

If you are still having trouble post your link tag code here, and we will see if we can get you going. Remember to indent each line of code you post to the forum by 4 spaces, so it will show up correctly on the forum.

Thank your for your reply. I have now saved a copy of that download to a CSS file on my desktop. However, it is not working. Here is my code.
