Hi All,
A newbie here, working on his first site...am trying to use the source code of a site I like, to learn and design but am unable to see how the HTML and the CSS for the page work together...i saved the CSS in a local file and used href to include it in the HTML but the page is rendered without any styling in the browser when i preview...can someone tell me how i need to look at this properly - the site is www.coffeecup.com? (i've included the sample original code and my changes below)..

Original code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html dir="ltr" lang="en">
<head>
...
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/min/?b=stylesheets&amp;f=master.css,homepage.css,colorbox.css,actionModal.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
...

My changes:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html dir="ltr" lang="en">
<head>
...
<link rel="stylesheet" href="C:\Website\styles.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
...

Appreciate any replies,
Max.
