Solution

your css file is named style.css. But you are linking styles.css. So try linking the correct thing.

<link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

like that.
That should work

@Fadrep, it appears you've made a typo on line 5 of index.html. Instead of referencing style.css, you typed styles.css. If you change it to the correct filename, you should be good to go!
No biggie, just a typo :)

the css file is called style.css, not styles.css. change the <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/> on line 5 to <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

You've simply misspelled the filename; the href specified in the <link> tag needs to match the name of your file:

<link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/> <!-- wrong -->
<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/> <!-- good -->

@EpicGamer007 You don't, but I have no need to change that code. It works, I don't need to meddle with it. I will change what needs to be changed, and no more. The principle of least impact applies here. If I have no need to touch it, I shall leave it.
