Hi Hannel

I have puzzleing news.   I made all the changes in my css file.  Then I decided to just copy yours over mine just in case I missed more codes.   But it still didn't translate to the html file when I opened with IE.

No idea why.  I see your html file, with all the color and borders.   It was much easier to read so I took the time to read the article.

To the point, you have my html file, I copied your css file onto mine and deleted the old file.  The html passed the validator.   What can be going wrong?

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Can I move onto lesson 4 without bringing these problems with me?  If I lose the rhythm of doing theae lessons I tend to let more time pass than I wish .....

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
