Is what we see your full code or some part of it has been lost? Try to mark it down if you can. There is a datasheet that appears above the post question/comment/reply buttons . Also your code appears green where? The workspaces? Browser?

Well I fixed the green code, but it still doesn't work when I view the page.

I fixed the code formatting for you. See this guide: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/posting-code-to-the-forum

What doesn't work? Does the page still come up white? Try holding down your mouse button and dragging around your page to see if it highlights any text.

You have "normalize 2.css" with a space in it. You should fix that by removing the space there and in the file name if it's present there.

Hi Noah, I think the issues are these. I am suspectig there might be one more but I want you to try this and see if it works.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize 2.css">
  <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Coustard|Cutive' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css/>

you have the space on normalize on the first link that has to go. On the second link you are using single quote ' use double " and in the end type 'text/css you never closed the quote. So...do these changes..

<link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize2.css">
  <link href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Coustard|Cutive" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css/">

If you still have issues after that, let us know.
