Default Chapter 10, Try It Out error, page 380

Using the News Control. Line 13 says: "...drag the site.css file from the templates folder in the directory into the aspx file to apply the style sheet."
1. I see no folder named 'templates' in the Solution Explorer, so I assume (usually this my downfall) that author means the Solution Explorer itself -- and especially since that is the only place I see file 'site.css' .
2. When I attempt to drag the site.css icon onto the NewDisplay.aspx icon in the Solution Explorer I get an error message that states "Cannot move 'site.css'. The destination folder is the same as the source folder."
3. Anyone give me a clue on how to apply the site.css file or what I am doing wrong? Thanks.

VV

Hi Victor,
          Once again the code I created for the chapter, and the final application code diverge a little (the code for the book was finalized way after the text unfortunately, something that any publisher runs foul of). Site.css is now already in the correct location, all you have to do is go to design view of the control and literally drag the site.css file onto the page, and it will add the necessary link tag (talked about in chapter 5 pages 138-149) for you. Then run it.

Chris

Chris:
Thanks for the help. Never dawned on me to drag the css file onto the design page. It works wonderfully now.
