Its possible that you may just need to reset your browser.

Hi, is it possible you was just using the Team TreeHouse built in text editor?.. if you are building your own HTML files in on your own desktop with a different text editor, you wont be able to edit code whilst the HTML is rendered in the browser.

Any text/code changes would have to be made in the .html file, saved, then reloaded in the browser to see the changes.

Hope this helps.
