I don't know why, but after I added the CSS link tag to the file, saved the file and refreshed the page I wasn't able to see the changes as showed on the video. I checked the folders, everything seems to be in the right place. Do you have any ideia what I have done wrong?

Can you paste your HTML and CSS so I can have a look?

Okay, well apparently the website cut out the HTML that you pasted. I'm assuming for security reasons. Do you have a GMail account? If so, you can upload a text file to Google Drive and Share the link to the file so I can view it. Hotmail has a service called Skydrive that you can use to share files as well. I need to be able to see the CSS and HTML before I can help.

Code Pen Is also a nice way particularly to share code.
