Parent CSS not Visible in Child Theme

    I’ll be so thankful if someone can help me sort this out. I’ve uploaded a child theme (twentytwelve) through the WordPress dashboard and activated it which all works fine. When you go to Editor, it says:
    This child theme inherits templates from a parent theme, Twenty Twelve.
    Stylesheet: style.css
    Everything seems to be working, but the page displays with no style elements in straight html format. I’ve tried using the line:
    @import url(‘../twentytwelve/style.css’);
    and I’ve even tried copying the entire style.css and pasting it under my child theme heading. In neither case does it show any style being applied. I’ll be deeply appreciative to anyone who can help me figure this out.
