Error Codes on 26/26

The lesson had told me to make add a link on my HTML page, and I did. I did it exactly as they told me to, but it kept giving me an error code saying:
"Oops, try again. Did you remember to put some link text between your tags? You can't leave them empty!"
Here's my html:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Result</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"/>
        <h1>Coding</h1>
        <p>Click the link to go to a great website to learn code.</p>
        <a href="http://www.codecademy.com/learn">Codecademy</a>
        <img src="https://d1qb2nb5cznatu.cloudfront.net/startups/i/57028-75249c08760cc9b8331013724066c538-medium_jpg.jpg?buster=1407971510"/>
    </body>
</html>

I'm very confused, because the text shows up on the Results page, and the link works, but I'm still getting an error message.
Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thanks!

<link> is not valid in the <body> element, as it is metadata intended to load in the <head> element.

check here how to format your code. Your code is currently not visible. if you update your question please leave a comment so i get a notification.
If you put your code i a comment, i am going to ask you to redo it, and use proper format.

Can you post all of your html? You can try to refresh/switch browser if you think you hit a glitch, if this doesn't work, please post code

works fine, make sure the zoom is 100%. try refreshing/switching browser

I tried changing the browser and it worked. Thanks for your help!

little glitch (caused by cached behavior), switching browser solves this problem
