    cant get my css to work

    I am starting with a new site. Made a simple version of the beginning of the first page with a an external style sheet putting it in the same folder. The css works for the body tag but not for the other tags. I am posting the html and the css, can you point out what my mistake might be? I can't figure it out. Any help appreciated.


    Here is the css:

    body {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    background-color: #050845;
    color: white;
    font: small Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;

    #Header {

    margin: 150px 0px 10px 0px;
    padding: 17px 0px 0px 20px;
    height: 100px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: white;
    border-width: 1px 0px;
    line-height: 11px;
    background-color: #eee;

    #Content {
    margin: 0px 50px 50px 200px;
    padding: 10px;

    Here is the HTML:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css11" type="text/css"/>

    <div id="header">

    <div id="content">

    You are using capital letters in your css file, so the names do not match with the html - the names are case sensitive.
