I am not able to download the "normalize.css" file, it only downloads as a mac file and doesn't function on my PC.

What do I do?

Im having the same problem. So I used your link, copy the normalize code and pasted it in the workspace. I saved the file as "normalize.css" but on line 11 workspace highlights the text red and when I hit preview workspace the website still has bulletins and looks like how it did earlier. I have a feeling that my normalize file isn't working and maybe the file is being read as an html instead of a css. Is there something I must type so the computer recognizes the file as a .css file?
