I downloaded the normalizer, but I am having trouble getting it to work. Could it be because of the place I saved it on my computer? I am using Windows 8.

Are you referring to normalize.css?


I can't see how you are trying to use it but it should be something like this

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">

This is assuming you have it in a folder called CSS in the root directory of your site (the same place as the index page). You can just create the above file then paste in the normailize.css content from here

This is what I have, but I am not seeing the changes taking effect.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

It should be on then. What changes are you expecting to see

I thought I was supposed to see a change in the text layout.

Its more to be consistent across all browsers. If you can enter chrome inspector and on the right it will have the css and you should see some rules coming from normalize

My code is written the exact way that it shows in the videos that I'm following. Could it just be an issue with where I'm saving the project tools? I am not seeing any changes being made after the indenting of the code or anything. Right now, I'm on Stage 3 Creating a Website Structure.

Could you zip up your project folder and stick it in dropbox, google drive, sky drive or some other drive lol and send me the link and i would be happy to check it out for you

I can. How can I get it to you? Would really appreciate it.

Dropbox, Google Drive or Sky Drive

Wicked. Just had a look and your linking was like this

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/grid.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

but your files were set out like so

new coding css - This is where the css should go index911.html grid.css normalize.css

Now you can either edit your linking like so

<link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="grid.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

or you can move the normalize.css and grid.css into the CSS folder so it would look like this

new coding css - grid.css normailize.css index911.html

I would go with the method of moving the CSS files to the CSS folder to set good practice and get used to organizing projects as they can get messy.

If you need anything else let me know.
