hey there, i was wondering why the changes I make on my html page don't appear when I refresh the page and preview it ?

I'm sure about the code on html, so why would the changes appear as I preview my work ? Thanks a lot for your time in advance !

Hey guys, thank you so much for your answers. I did save the changes, but still, the color remains the same and wouldn't change to orange. here's the code :

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Lake Tahoe</title> </head> <body style="background-colour: orange;">

  <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
  <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
  Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.

Hey 👋 a little spelling mistake use background-color: orange; you write colour.
