My main.css won't integrate with my index.html

I'm trying to get my css to integrate with my html, but when I hit preview it doesn't seem to work. Here is my code as follows. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?

main.css file:

a {
  text-decoration: none;

index.html file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <meta charset="utf-8">
        <title>Josh Clemence | Video + Design</title>
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Josh Clemence</h1>
        <h2>Video + Design </h2>
        <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
        <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
        <li><a href="about.html">Contact</a></li>
          <a href="img/Now Streaming.png">
          <img src="img/Now Streaming.png" alt="">

The link is correct syntax, but--is the path correct? Do you have a css subdirectory?

Hi Josh,

First thing is to check for typo's, make sure your css file is main.css and not Main or any other name.
Second thing is matching the file path to your css file.
When looking at your index.html file you should see a folder called css, when you open that folder you should see your main.css file.

Hope this helps.
