    HTML & CSS not communicating

    I will learn from asking this.

    Can anyone tell my why my page stops reading its stylesheet when I move it to a different directory?


    I want it to live in a new directory:


    ...but when I try that, it looses the stylesheet.

    Any help is appreciated, and thanks - in advance!

    Also, I intend to make a directory which feeds a different YouTube object on a regular basis through the same template (psephyxxxx.html). I know there must be a less sloppy way to do this with .php than to fill a directory with .html documents (psephyxxx1.html....phephyxxx2.html...). Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/psephystyle.css" />
    This will only work if the css folder is a child of the folder where the html file is. When the folders are parallel paths, you need to "back up" one folder in the relative link using "../" :
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../css/psephystyle.css">
    Note also that the trailing " /" before the closing tag is only applicable to xhtml, and is an error in html (which the browser will assume the page is as there is no doctype - something that also should be addressed)

    Thank you - I thought the directory needed to be changed somewhere.
