Live View is only for dynamic server-side pages like PHP.  With CSS it's just a stylesheet, so without the HTML to say what to style, there is nothing to show in Live View.

if you want to style work on CSS document and get the live view still rendering, you need to access CSS document from the related TAB document

CSS files are Code View only.  JavaScript files are Code View only.

To see the HTML page displayed in Design or Live view, open the HTML file and click on Source Code tab. 

 

In order to build websites, you need a working knowledge of HTML, CSS and to some extent JavaScript code. Read  chapters, do code exercises and take quizzes at the end.

Hope that helps.
