i was transferring tags to an external/linked CSS defns file.  When defined inline inside the php (html) file, the Verdana font displayed perfectly.
i cut and pasted to the external file, and it does not work.

body,td,th {
      font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;


what am i doing wrong??  

thanks!

/* CSS Document */
<style type="text/css">
body,td,th {
      font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
      font-size: 12px;
}
body {
      margin-left: 0px;
      margin-top: 0px;
      margin-right: 0px;
      margin-bottom: 0px;

You don't need the style tag in an external CSS file. Delete the following line and any closing tag at the end.

<style type="text/css">

Open in new window
