I am brand spanking new, trying to apply what I've learned so far in the workspace. Need help.

How do I apply my CSS to the html? I made a new file for CSS but its not attached to my html so when i click view workspace it just shows to links to my html which works(i also would rather it just go straight to the html instead of a link to it) but the CSS is just a download which I'm assuming means it doesn't know to attach the style commands to the html. How do I attach it so it styles the html? I'm very new just started two hours ago. I'm assuming I haven't progressed far enough to have learned this yet.

Hi Kevin,

Your code is not pasted here so I'm not sure exactly what you're looking at. Do you have a CSS file already and you want your HTML to recognize the CSS source and style your page?

If that is the case then you can put a link tag on your index.html file inside of the <head> tags. It should look something like this: <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">. Here, there is a folder called css and the css file name is main.css.

Does this help?
