Hi there, it would help to see your entire html and css file posted separately so that I can help you further in identifying the problem. The code you have provided isn't really read proof on your actual code, if you use the markdowns basics reference below, you can see how to add code for both languages separately.

Hi Jamie, Thanks for your reply, I worked it out, it was missing a semi-bracket in one of the previous selectors from the css file, now it works.
