I came here to post the same question but looks like lots of people already complaining about the same. Yes, No files in the workspace but I managed to find the workaround files by just looking at the video and copy the code. Here are the required files to follow along the code: index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>Scalable Vector Graphics</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">
    <h1>SVG Example</h1>

    <div class="wrapper">




body {
    font-family: 'Nunito', sans-serif;
    color: #384047;

h1, h2 {
    margin: 30px 0;
    text-align: center;

.wrapper {
    max-width: 90%;
    margin: 10px auto;
    padding: 10px 20px;
    background: #f4f7f8;
    border-radius: 8px;

normalize.css (https://necolas.github.io/normalize.css/8.0.0/normalize.css)

and finally...... Just change the filename from HTML-SVG.svg("Downloaded zip file") to star.svg

Good Luck all.

This is definitely helpful! Thank you, shashi7! It is still apparently an issue over a year later. I submitted a contact form to Support to notify them of the problem and asked them to look into it.

Still an issue now! In the downloadable course files, there is no html or css file.

I downloaded the course files and opened them using my text editor. I then copy and pasted each file individually onto workspaces. The svg file is correct, name just needs changing to star.svg. Hope this helps.
