Silly question for you. Is your .css file and .html file save in the same folder? And are you sure you have spelled your .css file correctly in your <link> tag?
Also, I noticed in your .css coding that you listed in an early post, you are missing some coding with font, such as the ending semi-colon. Since font is a shorthand property that sets all the font properties in one declaration and you are only using it for font-size, I would just do this coding:
Also, in your css file do you have the coding <style media="screen" type="text/css"> as you show in your example above? Because, I"m pretty sure that shouldn't be in the .css file, which could also be causing you the issue. Here is your example coding from an earlier post:
