Ben, maybe I'm missing something in your response but it appears as if you apparently missed the point of my question. I didn't ask how to create a new stylesheet and link it to the index.html file. I already did that. Now I have 3 stylesheets, 2 of which were created by CS6 and the third one created by me.I'm new at this but it seems as if the index.html file is looking at 3 different style sheets but when I change styles in the new sheet I created, it has no impact on the styles.
How do I get Dreamweaver CS6 to change styles in the file when they're modified in the new stylesheet? I hope this question makes sense.
The new style sheet must come after the other two so that it will override them.
Make sure that you have linked the stylesheet properly. For this make sure that the new style sheet shows up in the linked files as shown in the image - top arrow.
I had no iidea the last stylesheet listed takes precedence. Thanks for that great tip!
However, I think I did as you suggested but it's still having no impact on the style. Obviousuly I'm doing something wrong. Here's what I have for tish.css
<link href="CSS/boilerplate.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<link href="CSS/bobby_gfl.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<link href="CSS/tish.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
Here's the code from the style sheet for a Fluid Grid named articles_1
font:Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;

#Articles_1 will not affect an element with id="articles_1"
CSS is CaSe SenSiTiVe in this situation.
You need to verify the case structures of your selectors, they must be identical to the actual ids used.
I just figured out what I was doing wrong. I changed the font and font size only the smart phone section of the style sheet. I didn't realize I have to also change it in the tablet and desktop section. I feel like an idiot but at least I figured it out.
Thanks so much Ben! I'm sure I'll have additional questions as I move along.
