Issue with Head First Python Edition 2

I recently purchased the new book Head First Python version 2. I am working through chapter 5 and it appears that on page 214, the css link does not work. The author has: which would not work for me. However, I was able to get the line of code to work with Also, there is no mention, that I can find, in the chapter that mentions that the CSS is cached meaning that once it is set, it cannot be easily changed. I would really like to post this issue on the forum page but I am not allowed to start a new topic. Any help with this matter will be great.

  • Hi Mike.

    I edited this book, so I'd be happy to contact the author about the issues you spotted. I want to be sure I have all the info I need to convey your questions.

    It looks like some info was left out of your message--did you intend to include code snippets from the book? Those were omitted, so I'm not sure exactly what you meant. (Here's the specific part I'm confused about. You wrote: " The author has: which would not work for me. However, I was able to get the line of code to work with.")

    If you could please clarify your concerns, I'll reach out to Paul Barry for you.

    Best,

    Good day Dawn,
    Thank you or the reply! I actually received a message from Paul Barry about my issue and he managed to solve it. However, he did notice, like me, that the CSS page would not reload in Chrome if a change was made to the file. Paul was not sure why this was happening as well. But, he did tell me that it would work fine in Safari and it did! (I should have paid more attention of the photo's in the book because they were of Safari as well.) Anyways, it just appears that in Chrome, in order to get the CSS changes to appear if you make them to your CSS file, you have to go into incognito mode. Thank you again for the quick reply and for your help! I am also really enjoying the book as well so far! Have a great day/week, Mike
