    firefox reads html & css seperate

    When I change my text on my html page it does not read my CSS
    I have my work on notepad++ but I cant connect my index.html to read my style.css on my browser which I have saved as index.html to my desktop.
    I have my link as..
    <link href="abc_style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Can you post a link to your page? Also do not put style tags in the external stylesheet.

    Thanks for your reply, yes I am able to send a link & no I dont have any style tags. I can change my wording but I cant see my background boxes.
    I had them all at school but when I bought them home I lost my CSS.

    sorry Aerospace I may be mis-interpeting what you mean by posting a link, I was going by that as, does my wording change in my browser if I amend the text in html.

    What I mean was post a url to your page. You have given us very little information to work with.

    Sorry Im not to good at explaining,
    On my notepad++ I have 2 pages
    one is my index.html the other is style.css
    Now when I open this on browser, all showing.
    But when I ammend the text on my html page it is not changing on my browser.
    Yet if I change the color of a box in css, the color changes.

    Are you sure you are editing the correct page? When you open the page in the browser do a view source and compare it with the file you are changing. See if they match.

    Just for info; I've found HTML-Kit by Chami a GREAT tool. It rivials Dreamweaver - and it's free! Chami.com
    HTML-Kit also has a plugin feature, where one can load seperate modules and extensions for different tools within the application. Seriously, it's a program worth, at least, trying.

    Just talking about it makes me want to go back to using it!

    Irrational numbers make no sense.
