Normalize.css link wont connect to my stylesheet
The video states to unzip the normalize.css file from the "project files" associated with the class. I did so with WinRar and dragged the unzipped normalize.css file into the drag/drop field to upload it.....and it wouldn't upload, even after a few hours. SO. I went online to get the newest normalize.css file, copied and pasted it into a new file that I created in workspaces that I entitled "normalize.css". From there, I drug that file into my css folder in workspaces and thought that it would work. The link in my html looks like: <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> which is exactly what the video states to type. Neither way is working for me because when I preview my website it hasn't stripped away any of the bullet points or changed any of the default browser settings as far as I can tell. In the video however, the font has changed and the bullet points are gone. I'm not sure if the new file has changed some things or if something is just wrong all together. Any help is appreciated!

Normalize no longer removes bullet points. It just smooths out many inconsistencies in padding and margins with different elements. In earlier versions of normalize, it did however remove bulltet points, so you may be seeing that in a video, but as far as I remember they were using V1 of normaalize, when it was more verbose.
The best way to check this is to use your browsers inspector tool, reload your page, and look in the network section, where it will show every asset it loaded. Normalize will be there. If it got a 200 OK, you know normalize was included. Otherwise, it will show the file was not found, and than you'll have to check your link path again.
Hope that helps.

you want want to post a URL to the video, so people know what this is about. I'm not sure normalize.css is meant to strip away bullet points. I took a look inside normalize.css at github and i couldn't see any styles related to li, ul, or ol elements. (the effects of normalize are probably subtle - my first thought was to confirm what you were thinking of related to normalize.css and not some other stylesheet)
