grid.css is a cascading stylesheet. This file you do all your styling to your webpage. For this to work you will have to have this piece of code inbetween the opening and closing HEAD tags in your index.html file.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/grid.css" type="text/css" />
where ever your index.html file is located. There should be a folder contained within that same folder as the index.html. That folder name should be called css inside that folder should be a FILE called grid.css as long as the folder and file structure remains the same. That <link> tag above should link or refer over to that stylesheet and apply any styles you coded in the grid.css file to the index.html file.
When you download the project files and unzip them into a directory. This structure should already be set up for you. So if the <link> tag is already present in the index.html file. Then and styles you code into grid.css should apply to the index.html file.
Hope that wasn't too confusing.

hey robert, that sounds like you selected html to open in notepad as default. If you want to keep that default value you can still open your html files anytime by clicking the right mouse key (when viewing in windows explorer) and then select "open with" - there you can then choose your browser like IE, firefox, chrome and so on... hope that helps ;)
thanks for all the help, I got it kind of going but I still cant save the css/grid/ img to index
I seem to be stuck with the same issue. Trying upload img. and other files under index.html using Sumblime Editor on Windows. Could you please share with me how you managed to solve this?
Thank you, Robert. I think I am on the right track. I still cannot view images after refresh. Agree with you, it is a "filing" issue. I have to build this perfect filing grid in a designated folder on my Windows. Will try to re-download the files.
YAY! Finally, after re-downloading img. files to a designated folder on Windows, after refresh on Chrome I can view img. files.
in Chrome. ST2 and Chrome work great together on Windows 7.
