Link to the challenge:

Am I missing something here? apparently there’s a problem with the link element

Hi there,

Yes you have not copied the exact value of the name of the stylesheet file.
They expected ./styles.css

The problem is actually a stray html tag at the top of your page.
When I pasted and submitted your code the error tells me:

The link element should be within the head element

Remove the stray tag and the code will pass, regardless of whether your href is styles.css or ./styles.css.
