    Look at my page please?

    I'm a real newbie and just trying to get some line height in this paragraph of body text. The page is http://www.globusdesign.com/aboutus.html. You can see how I've linked it to my stylesheet.
    I've made a page in Textedit (Mac) called body.css which I've uploaded to the same place where I uploaded the html page. Body.css consists of this:
    body {font-family: Arial, verdana, helvetica, geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.8em }
    What am I doing wrong??

    Hi welcome to the forums.

    I looked in your body.css

    Code:
    {\rtf1\mac\ansicpg10000\cocoartf102
    {\fonttbl\f0\fswiss\fcharset77 Helvetica;}
    {\colortbl;\red255\green255\blue255;}
    \margl1440\margr1440\vieww9000\viewh9000\viewkind0
    \pard\tx720\tx1440\tx2160\tx2880\tx3600\tx4320\tx5040\tx5760\tx6480\tx7200\tx7920\tx8640\ql\qnatural
    
    \f0\fs24 \cf0 body \{font-family:  Arial, verdana, helvetica, geneva, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.8em \}}
    I really dont understand the code in there at all. Is that from Adobe GoLIve?

    Might be worth reading http://css.somepeople.net these CSS tutorials to get ther basics down first.

    Look at my page please?

    I made body.css according to http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_howto.asp
    where I went after entering "learn CSS" on Google. I also have a book and have been trying to get a handle on CSS for awhile. I would be so appreciative if you could give me code for making the .css file work so I can get space between the baselines of my type. Please have pity on me.
