  Old  problem linkings css to html page

Hi, I'm currently attempting to follow a tutorial on coding a very simple site and am having some problems linking my style.css page to my html page.

I have inserted the code <link href="mysite/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" /> in the <head> tag right bellow the title tag.

The "website" it's uploaded to is if you need to take a further look at the code.

If anyone can please take a look at this and hopefully point out what I am doing wrong that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have also tried viewing the website offline with the href="style.css" and still does not appear to make a difference.

Note: I am also very aware that I only have a few lines of css but I believe it should be at least centered to the page from what I have there, and do not want to move further through the tutorial until I get this right.

Thank you again in advance.

  Old  linking css

Hi try taking out the "/mysite" and "style.css"
basically with relative links you need to think where your html sits.
In this case in the mysite folder. If you added a new folder in my site called "css" you would link the css "css/style.css"

If you are ever in doubt what you can do to guarantee linking it an absolute link. for example <link href= "" type="text/css" media="screen" />

google relative links vs absolute links to find more tricks and tips.
