Grid Problems

When laying down my <div> tags I can't get the page to lay down the format like the video. It did indent from the page, however nothing else seem to work.

You've got a few errors with your HTML markup according to the W3C's HTML nu validator.

If fixed the errors. But still nada. Would it be best to start over?

I am using sublime text

No, once you've got valid HTML it's good and your the issue lies elsewhere.

Almost certainly the issue is with the file path specified in <link> for your CSS. Here's a quick primer on file paths that should get you going.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated!
