It does not work how it should

I followed Nick´s video but my site doesn´t even close look like Nick´s

Here is my HTML

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title> Jan Francirek|CEO </title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Changa+One|Open+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css"> </head> <body> <header> <a href="index.html" id="logo"> <h1>Jan Francirek</h1> <h2>CEO at Innovare s.r.o.</h2> </a> <nav> <ul id="gallery"> <li> <a href="index.html" class="selected">Portfolio</a></li> <li> <a href="about.html">About</a></li> <li> <a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li> </ul> </nav>
</header> <div id="wrapper"> <section> <ul> <li> <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""> <p>Some text. </p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-02.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""> <p>Some text2 </p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-06.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""> <p>Some text3. </p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-09.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-09.jpg" alt=""> <p>Meow. </p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-12.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-12.jpg" alt=""> <p>Some text4. </p> </a> </li> </ul> </section> <footer>

But the problem will be in CSS i guess

/***************************************************** GENERAL *****************************************************/

body { font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; }

wrapper {

max-width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; padding: 0 5%; }

a { text-decoration:none; }

/***************************************************** HEADING *****************************************************/

}

Hi Jan!

your code should be like this:

index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
