Try closing the below div, your missing the ending ">"

<div class="grid_4">

Yup, I was about to say the same thing but Pete beat me to it :-)

Ah ok. something definitely hapened that for sure. Stil isnt centrered in the browser though.

I just finished that project yesterday, when I use the grid.css with your html it looks like its centered, or at least following the grid structure. Do you have the grid.css in the css folder?

Also, you only have grid_4 so far, you will need to add many more as the project goes on.

Thats strange. Everytime i refresh it, it is still not centered like in the video.
