My top bar isn't showing up. I changed the pixel value and the color, and now it won't show up at all.

Here is the code:

html { background-color: gray; border-top: 20px solid #black;

Before you add any properties to the bar, you have to make it visible by adding 'border-style: solid;' before the 'border-top' property.

Also if you're adding a bar to your web page, you should use a separate div for it.

Not sure what your trying to do but try this? { background-color: gray; border-top: 20px solid #000; } also I do agree with Shaikat separate div
