I downloaded normalize, but it just shows up as a webpage. I didn't know what to do so I copied and saved it to sublime and saved it to my documents and directed the code there - but it still doesn't work. Suggestions? I'm very confused.

How to add normalize.css:

  1. Go to normalize.css file from github
  2. Click the big green download button
  3. Save the file to your desktop
  4. Move the normalize.css file to your sublime text project folder
  5. Create a link element that references css/normalize.css

This works the same way as the <a> element, by using the href attribture This assumes of course that all of your css files are in a folder named css

Let us know in this thread if you are still having trouble with normalize.css

Hi Nia,

Check out the Quick tip we did on Normalize :)


I used the code <link rel="stylesheet" href="webtut/img/normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen"> underneath the <title>.

In my folder, normalize.css is in webtut, img

It still isn't working and I can't figure out what's wrong. I am also doing the same with my photos, but they are also not showing up. There must be something wrong with my file path, but I can't seem to figure out what.

The 2 most common mistakes when images are not showing up are a typo with the file names or using the wrong file path.

So triple check that you are using the exact name of the image files in your HTML, if that doesn't resolve the issue, check the file paths.

Here's a quick primer on file paths that should get you going.

Let us know how you are getting along with this here in this thread.

I think I am missing something. How far back in the files do I have to go? For example, my normalize.css file is in Libraries, My Documents, webtut, img, normalize.css. I have put this in my text editor: <link rel="stylesheet" href="webtut/img/normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

I have checked and double checked and triple checked. I have also tried with My Documents and different variations. I'm still very very confused. Sorry for being such a bother.
