CSS How to Make a Website CSS: Cascading Style Sheets What is CSS?

Some of my code is highlighted in red on my workspace and I can't figure out what I did wrong.

This happened right before I got to the CSS segment of "How to make a website".

You havent closed off your link tag for your stylesheet here on line 3, be sure to close them off with a " :

 <!-- Your current code -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css> <!-- here you arent closing off the href attribute -->
 <!-- What your code should be-->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> <!-- added closing " -->

Michael Allen for the win! Thanks Michael!

It starts highlighting in red on the 16th line down at the first h1

So I am assuming I did something wrong above that line???

At the first h1. This is even more difficult to explain on here. Is there nowhere that I can post an actual screenshot?

when I preview my workspace and refresh, there are no changes since the area from line 16 down is mostly all highlighted in red.

going to try logging out so that I can reset my workspace.

Take a screenshot by using the camera on the top right side of the workspace and post the link here in the forum.
