@Frank - You don't need to open normalize.css instead you need to link it your html page. This is called linking an external stylesheet. You can read more about linking external stylesheets in this Beginner's Guide to HTML & CSS.

How to add normalize.css:

  1. Go to normalize.css file from github
  2. Click the big green download button
  3. Save the file to your desktop
  4. Move the file the normalize.css file in your sublime text project folder
  5. Create a link element that references css/normalize.css

This works the same way as an <a> by using the href attribture This assume that all of your css files are in a folder named css
