Style sheet not working


I have been following the customization reference for adding a style sheet to the Okta hosted sign-on Widget. I worked through making changes on the live-widget page, copied them to a SCSS =>CSS complier, downloaded the file to a webserver and added the following to the head of the HTML editor ```

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://realfilelocation.css">

My style file never loads.  I am not a dev (please don't laugh) and I can't figure out why the file is not working.  I have checked the file to be sure it is a .CSS, made sure it is accessible via the internet, doublechecked spelling and I still am unable to figure out why it does not work.  I have been searching the internet for a while now and can't find any new ideas of what or how to check.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to troubleshoot this issue?
