Link it up!...?

One question.
I am practising my coding on Notepad++ too.
I doing well so far. Until now. I am trying this CSS language. I understand all of it but one thing.

How should I link my .html file to my .css file?
How should my command line in Notepad++ look like?
My .css file is saved in my computer only.

i think (not sure) but you can do internal stylesheet (i will explain in a bit) or external should be possible. i think you should use the link from codecademy but replace href with:


and then of coursing using your location and filename.
internal stylesheet should be easy using:


and then put all style items inside the styletags. hopes this works, not sure

How do people link CSS when they actually make websites?

in the same way as here in codeacademy, the important thing is that you put both files in the same directory

this post is 10 months old? how on earth did you find it?
it is not necessary to have the files in the same directory! you can do relative and absolute paths to have the files in different folders!
