How do I insert CSS into HTML from an external file?

I've added the tag in the HTML file, and the CSS file exists, but it has no effect on the style

I'm guessing this is the tag you used in the HTML file to add it:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">

In case your web project structure is like this:



(i.e. index.html inside a folder and next to it there's a folder named 'css', inside which style.css is.)

Then the html tag should be:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/styles.css"> (notice the difference in the 'href' attribute value)

Thank you for such quick answer!
I actually used a wrong tag all together :)

make sure your filename is correct and everything is in lowercase
