    HTML not using my css file

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and building sites, so I appreciate any help at this point. I'm going nuts here and have used what I've learned through classes and books. But the stylesheet isn't being completely used by my html. I see that it works for some parts, but not all and I'm at a loss. For one, I've set my <div> to use a container class in my css, I used the appropriate name, checked the tags, etc. but it doesn't use it whatsoever:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Welcome to Punkie Designs</title>
    <link href="mystyles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <script src= ""></script>


    <section id="actions">
    <div class="container">
    <h1>Welcome to Punkie Designs</h1>
    <p>I'm currently in the process of building my site.<br>
    Please check back soon!

    actions {
    background-color: #ffffff;
    border-top: 6px solid #51a3b4;
    padding: 5px;
    margin-bottom: 15px;

    container {
    max-width: 740px;
    width: 90%;

    Another issue I'm having is the necessary tags for <nav>. It uses part of the style I set up in my css, but the hover part isn't working:

    <a href="#" role="button" ng-click="toggle()">Contact Info</a></nav>
    <table style="width 100%" ng-hide="myVar">

    /* Styles for <a> tags for buttons */
    nav a {
    background-color: #51a3b4;
    color: white;
    text-decoration: none;
    outline: none;
    padding: 10px 0;
    display: block;
    float: center;
    border-bottom: 4px solid #062b4d;
    border-radius: 5px;
    width: 10%;
    text-align: center;
    box-sizing: border-box /* for older browsers */
    -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
    -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;

    /* Unvisited and visited styling */
    nav a:link, nav a:visited {
    background-color: #51a3b4;
    color: white;

    /* Styling for hover and tap */
    nav a:hover, nav a:active {
    background-color: #7a7a7a
    color: black;
    -webkit-transition: background-color 0.2s ease;
    -moz-transition: background-color 0.2s ease;
    -ms-transition: background-color 0.2s ease;
    -o-transition: background-color 0.2s ease;
    transition: background-color 0.2s ease;

    Crazy, but the AngularJS I set up works fine. LOL!! Again, any help at this point would be greatly appreciated!!!

    You're missing the dot in front of class name in your css.

    actions {

    should be:
    .actions {

    The same for container:
    .container {

    Hover is maybe overwritten somewhere or Angular is overwriting it, as you have role="button" set in A tag. Try to remove it to see what will happen

    Actually, "actions is an id , so it should be #actions in the CSS, container is a class, so should have the "." before the word like so: container.

    I think you may find it useful to read about CSS at CSS Tutorial Start at the beginning and pay attention to the chapters on syntax and selectors. Move forward from there, and make use of the testing area so you can see how things work.
