HTML How to Make a Website Styling Web Pages and Navigation Style the Portfolio

My two columns aren't appearing. I'm sure it's something really silly, but I've watched the video multiple...

I've watched the video like 3 times now and have copied everything he did, but I'm not getting two columns (and I'm definitely saving my changes first). Here's what I have in my index.html:

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Dania Lugo | Cat Lover</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Mukta+Vaani:300,400,600,700|Slabo+27px" rel="stylesheet"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">

Could you take a snapshot of your workspace and post it here? It should be a camera icon in the upper-right section of workspaces. It would make it easier to help, especially since the formatting on the code you pasted isn't working right, and it didn't work when I tried to format it myself in a comment.

Tyler, I took a snapshot, but I'm not sure how to add it here. Do I need to take one of the css doc AND the html doc, or does one snapshot get both? I'm also not sure how to reply directly to your commend, so hopefully you see this message!

The snapshot I believe gives you a link. It will give the entire workspace, so you don't have to do it for each file.

Hi Diana,

Off the bat the first thing I spotted was in your html is "<ul id:="gallery">". You shouldn't have a colon punctuation in your id declaration. Try this:

  <ul id="gallery">
   <!-- rest of your code here -->

That was it, thank you!
