Linking Bootstrap with Custom Stylesheet.

I'm having an issue linking a custom stylesheet in conjunction with a bootstrap stylesheet. Here's the head:

       <meta charset="utf-8">
       <title>My Title</title>
       <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
       <!-- Bootstrap -->
       <link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
       <link href="css/custom.css" rel="stylesheet">
       <script src="js/respond.js"></script>

I have tried using inline styling, and that works fine. I also have the JavaScript at the bottom of the document. Thanks in advance!

Hm.. on first glance it looks ok.. though I'd personally place the javascript before the closing body tag instead of inside the head.

Maybe try changing the lines in your head to this:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/custom.css">

type attribute is missing in your code.

Awesome! Thank you... I find it bizarre that this is how a lynda.com (can I mention them here?) tutorial had me construct the head. At the time, I thought it was weird to leave out the type attribute. Thanks for the reminder!
