Hello fellows,
When I answered the question yesterday I was under the impression Wannes was asking how to link to a style sheet on his own. Only this morning I realized it was a specific question about a specific lesson. My apologies for that.

In the lesson, in the head section, there is already a link to the stylesheet but it is not functioning because the author wrapped it in a comment tag on purpose.
The author wanted to achieve two goals:
1- To assure you know how to comment and uncomment html scripts for testing purposes.
2- To show you where the link to the CSS stylesheet goes and how it looks like.

What to do:

If you still have the link there, just remove the comment tags: this one on the left: <!-- and this one on the right: -->
If you changed the link by mistake, just copy the following link and paste it in the head section, just above the <title> :

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

I thought his answer was obvious. Read the :What to do' part again.
Put this: in the head section just above the tag.
