I Am using an a special text-editor called atom then when i tried to launch the code that is in my text editor It does not launch. Why?. Notice: when it launches the website it shows nothing only plain website.

Hey John, since you are now working on your local machine instead of an online workspace, relative paths will not work. So for instance, you will need to replace
<link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css">
With the actual path to your css file, for instance:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="C:\Sample\Documents\css\main.css">
I'm 99% sure this is your issue, can you let us know?
