I believe the code is correct, yet I get an error

Instructions: add a tag between the tags in the HTML tab to the right. The link should have an href attribute that points to stylesheet.css.

Here's my link statement in the head section:

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

Here's the message I get:

*Oops, try again.
*
Did you set type=\"text/css\"? Make sure to type it just as shown, without extra spaces.

I tried putting the link statement above and below the title. I even went back to a previous session that had no problems and copied the statement from there, to no avail. Should I just accept this as a glitch and move on?

I'm having the exact same problem. It definitely seems like there is a bug.

Don't put the space between the last letter and the slash.

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

To get the points, you can copy and paste the code from the site over yours. (Kind of cheating, but it registers).

Good job Michael, just tried and it works for me now as well. How do you submit a bug report?

Attach the link to the head. Not on seperate lines.

<head><link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
    <title>Result</title>

Your answer is correct, something seems to be wrong on the site's end.

Same thing is happening for me, and when I skipped to the next exercise it's claiming I have no h1 tags which I do. This is frustrating and resetting it does nothing.

I am having the same problem, however it actually registers in the HTML and the CSS, as I added a /* backgound-color:*/ to check fi the code worked.

The code functions, but the section doesn't register the "type/css" code. It is a bug, but we are doing it correct and the code functions.
