I have copied and pasted all of my css coding into a .css file.
I started a new page with with the external style sheet as mentioned above.
<link rel="stylesheet"href="C:\Users\Shepard\Desktop\styles.css" />
Everything works great on the new page except the Body portion. In my style sheet I set left, right, top and bottom margins as well as background-color. When I open my new document it ignors my Body css code? My margins are all ar 0 and my color is white when it should be red.
