What am I doing wrong here? step 17

Step 17

Now you need to link the styles.css file so the styles will be applied again. Nest a self-closing link element in the head element. Give it a rel attribute value stylesheet , a type attribute value of text/css , and an href attribute value of styles.css .

  **Your code so far**

< head>
< link rel=“stylesheet” type=“text/css” href=“style.css”>
< meta charset=“utf-8” />
< title>Cafe Menu< /title>
< /head>

i don’t understand what’s wrong with the code?

I think it’s having an issue with the placement of where the line

< link rel=“stylesheet” type=“text/css” href=“style.css”>

is located. In the code I did it’s below the title tags. It appears correct to me otherwise. Give that a shot.

Hi @Declicous ,

You shouldn’t be adding spaces here :

(Restart the step as you’ve added too many spaces).

Check the href attribute value again you are missing an s.

You also need to be using "" instead of “”.

i added those spaces because it kept disappearing when I posted it

Oh that’s fine then. Is it working for you now ?


When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks.

```
Your code goes here
```

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor ( </> ) to add backticks around text.

it’s styles.css not style.css

I had the same issue. I had the change the order and it worked for me.

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

I added href attribute before the others, and it was a success.
