Why is my preview not the same as Nick's? Is it my code or, is it my browser?

I've been following along with Nick, and everything has been going great until now. I was wondering if there was a problem with my code (which seems to replicate Nick's) or, if there could be something else I am not able to see atm:

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Coach Ashman's Mentor and Leadership Program | Helping you Navigate the Turblence of Sport and Life</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> //by adding this link, the bullet points should disappear in my workspace, in addition to other subtle changes??? <style> footer { color: green; } </style> </head>

Thank you everybody in advance!

You need to have the right structure in your code for your Html document to work.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Coach Ashman's Mentor and Leadership Program | Helping you Navigate the Turblence of Sport and Life</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">   //by adding this link, the bullet points should disappear in my workspace, in addition to other subtle changes???
  </head>
  <body>
  <style>
  footer {
    color: green;
  }
</style>
  </body>
</html>

Rate if this helped you ! =D

At this point, I can't say if your comments were helpful or not, as I don't understand them! Thank you for your attempt though. I continued searching, and somebody had mentioned how the changes that were witnessed in Nick's Workspace, would for whatever reason not transfer to our own. Apparently, the reasoning for this will be mentioned in a future lesson.

Again, I'd like to thank you for your time.
