CSS

Smells Like Bakin (grid.css)

Hi guy's, I'm new here and not from an english speaking country, so sorry for the mistakes.

I started with html a few day's ago and now I'm working on the grid.css file. I inclueded it to my html file, but my page didn't look like in the video. I double checked the code but I couldn't find the mistake. Probably somebody can help me with this probleme. Here is my current code:

Thanks a lot!

I don't see where you included the grid.css file in your html here. Can you try to post it again with the whole html file?

Post the whole html file with the header and body tags
