Having Trouble with the Menu Styling

About 35 seconds into the video you are instructed to add styling to the unordered list you created in html for the menu bar (about, contact, etc.). I have added the code exactly as shown in the video, but I can't get my menu items to change. I went back into my html code thinking maybe I had not entered the class correctly, but everything looks good there. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or how to fix it?

It was a silly mistake in my original code. Forgot to close a div! That'll do it every time.

Hi Mackenzie,

If the code is correct then make sure you have saved the files before refreshing the browser.
