There's an error in my classes in my HTML

I'm trying to finished up my simple webpage and ran into issues with my css in my contact page.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>| Casual | Consumer</title>
     <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Oswald:400,700|Open+Sans:400italic,400,600' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/casual.css">

        <h1>The Casual | Consumer</h1>
          <li><a href="aboutcasual.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="examplescasual.html">Examples</a></li>
          <li><a href="contactcasual.html">Contact</a></li>
          <li><a href="casual.html">Home</a></li>
      <h3>General Information</h3>
      <p>If you want to contact me, I can be reached via email or twitter.</p>
      <h3>Contact Details</h3>
      <ul class="contact-info">

        <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=footclan">@footclan</a></li>

In my css file I really just wanted to remove the bullet points just to make sure my class is working, but it isn't.

/************************ CONTACT PAGE ************************

************************             ************************/

.contact-info {
    list-style: none;


Any help would be great. I'm going to be learning javascript next month, and I've given myself about 2 months to learn it. What is a good way to maintain my skills and what I've learned in HTML/CSS while learning javascript?

Hi Jason

I tried your code and it works. Have you have any other css issues? Is the css code you posted on a different css file.

I'm not sure if this will help the result, but you are missing quotation marks around your hrefs in your footer.

No not quotes around the footer, quotes around the href in your footer. It looks like those are missing but you have them for all the other hrefs in the html document? Maybe the code posted funny.

Should be
