<!doctytpe html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.01 transitional//en" "deleted as not needed"
I'll come back to this but read the sticky at the top of this forum. Doctypes are required.

As stated above, the DOCTYPE is not optional.

In your css, the .logo has a parenthesis instead of a bracket and comma where there should be a semicolon. In .copyright, you have commas instead of semicolons.

If you had validated your css you would have known this but there are other errors still. Also validate your html for that list of errors.
