I have designed a CSS file after exploring it on the google about how to make a css file for produce multiple color in the table data.
I added this CSS file in my php file but it's not working, i don't know why.

Please find my code below.

My Php file

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>CHP Search Incidents</title>
<link href="design.css"  type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

<p>MM/DD/YYYY</p><form action="" method="POST">
<input type=text name=search >
<input type=submit name=submit value=Search>


   echo "Today Date Is = ";
   echo "$date";




	$selectcondition = "SELECT * FROM order_details where DATE='".$_POST['search']."'"; //Select Query Which check the INCIDENT ID whether the TURNOVER for the given INCIDENT is exit or not.


		if(!$fetch)            				//If checklist for the given date is not exit execute if condition 


	                echo "<font color='red'>";
			echo "<br>";
			echo "No Order Found In The Database"; 
			echo "<br>";
	                echo "</font>";

		 else //if the above condition is flase !
		 	$sql= "select * from order_details where DATE='".$_POST['search']."'";

			 echo "<table width='100%' height='10%' border='1' cellspacing='0'>
				 <tr  bgcolor='#FF6600'>
		                  <th>MODIFIED DATE</th>
		                  <th>Sample ID</th>
			while($records = mysql_fetch_array($mydata))
	            	echo "<tr class='mytable'>";
	            		echo "<td>" . $records['TIMESTAMPS'] . "&nbsp;</td>";
	            		echo "<td>" . $records['SAMPLEID']. "&nbsp;</td>";
	            		echo "<td>" . $records['ORDER'] . "&nbsp;</td>";
	            		echo "<td>" . $records['STATUS'] . "&nbsp;</td>";
						echo "<td align='center'>";
						echo '<textarea  name="textarea" cols="100"  >'.$records['COMMENTS'].'</textarea><br>'; 
					echo "</td>";

			echo "</table>";

MY CSS file

@charset "utf-8";
/* CSS Document */

.mytable {

.mytable td {
	padding::8px;border:#999 1px solid;
.myTable tr:nth-child(even) { /*(even) or (2n+0)*/
