You have the CSS declared as classes, but are using id='' in your HTML. If you want to define it by id, use #leftSide instead of .leftSide.

You also have the incorrect names used in your HTML -- you have used id='left_side' instead of id='leftSide'

I would definitely start by validating your code, fixing it and then see what's wrong.  You do have some very messy code(no offense), that you really should clean up.
When I validated by direct input I found 24 errors and 3 warnings

For starters, your <link> tag (line 30) for the CSS file should be located INSIDE the HEAD.  Right now, it is not inside of anything... which is extremely wrong.

Try putting your CSS file (line 30)  at the top of your HEAD (line 7)

If the css is TOTALLY not working then it can be that your href="" path is wrong. Where is your CSS file situated in your directory?. Can you provide a tree structure of your directory showing where each file is sitting?
