help to add a banner

Hi, does anyone have experience with text/edit on mac. I have added the following code to make a banner, however nothing seems to be happening. Can you see what the problem is?

<!DOCTYPE> 
<head>
        <title>banner title</title>
<style>
    html{
        margin:0;   
        padding:0;
        height:100%;
        width:100%
        overflow:hidden;
    }
    body{
        margin:0;
        padding:0;  
        height:100%
        width:100%
        background-color:white;
        overflow:scroll;
        overflow-x:hidden;
    }

    .banner{
        margin:Opx auto;
        padding:0;
        height:10%
        width:100%
        overflow:hidden;
        border:solid;
        background-color:d8d8d8;
        border-color:81daf5;
        border-width Opx 0px 5px 0px;

</style>

I'm not sure, but it looks like you have nowhere specified in the html which the class defining CSS can act on.

</script>
<body>
     <div class="banner"> // This should create a div which the .banner CSS can act on

     </div>
</body>
</html>
