Working with Grids

I've just got to the working with grids video on the smells like bakin video and I've got my code typed out the same as in the video (as far as I can tell) but the "cupcake of the week" and "Fresh out the oven" section are not aligned next to each other as is the same with "Inside the kitchen" and "Get bakin with us" and the copyright section doesn't seem to be spanning all 12 columns.

Please help, here is my code from index.html

  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
  <title>Smells Like Bakin Cupcake Company</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

The code appears when you indent four spaces, try that.

check your code again... there are 2 missing closing tags in your markup, check you featured div section and container.

Try putting all of your code to the left and then indent each piece step by step, it will help you to put your code into order. Also make lots of "comments" <div class="container clearfix"> <!-- start of container -->

 <div class"header">    <!-- start of header etc etc etc

</div> <!-- end of container -->

Thanks I think I sorted it now :)
