CSS stage 4

So far in this lesson-Is anything supposed to be inside the "normalize.css" file?

The css for normalize should be inside "normalize.css" but you should not be adding any of your own css to it.

Like Jason said, it's smarter to just leave normalize.css alone, and make any adjustments to the styles in your own stylesheet -- eg. my-styles.css. Here you can override anything in the normalize.css stylesheet as long as the link to your stylesheet is after the link to the normalize.css stylesheet in your html file. "After" meaning lower down on the page.

There should be some CSS in the normalize.css file. You can add or remove some of your own CSS if you want to.
