HTML How to Make a Website Beginning HTML and CSS Add Style to the Page

In my workspace, my code is an exact match to the instructor's, yet when I preview it my page shows nothing but my name.

I've redone the work 3 times now, and the result is always the same.

Hi Scott Lebold, if you copy and paste your code in the description of your question it will be easier for us to give feedback and figure out what's going on.

You can use triple backticks(`)(the tilde key on US keyboards) to format your post as code. E,g,:

Put your code in a block like this.

<!-- To display it like this. -->
<table id="example">

First, make sure you save every open tab in your text editor (such as index.html, normalize.css) and refresh the browser in the browser tab (If using a Mac: Cmd R).

Sam, once I did your solution, it worked. I'm using IE11.

I'm happy that suggestion fixed your issue, Tristan. I was a PC loyalist for many years (I was partial to IBM/Lenovo Thinkpads.) and had problems with IE pretty often. Switched to Mozilla Firefox and liked it better but some banks don't optimize their scripts for Firefox and I was having trouble downloading my transactions into Quicken. Last year I made a more drastic switch -- to a MacBookPro -- and I browse only with Safari. I have to say I am glad I made the switch, for many reasons. I don't ever want go back to a PC for my main work -- but I still use my old Thinkpad for Quicken Home & Business because Intuit doesn't make an OS X version.

Well Sam, it appears the problem came back. Tried the solution again and can't get it to work.

Hmmm....Are the images labeled .jpg or .jpeg? And are the image tags pointing to *.jpg or *.jpeg?

Woops -- I'm sorry, Tristan. I confused your question with another question in the Forum.

Are you experiencing this issue at the "Add Style to the Page" module in the "How To Make a Website" course?

I am experience the same issue on the 'Add style to the page' module I have created a new workspace and it keeps just showing my full name when I preview no matter what changes I make

Patrick, I will be happy to help but I would need to see your code, so copy and paste it in this forum and I'll take a look.

Hi Sam, I fixed the error not long after I sent this message, thank you for getting back to me though
