Tell us what’s happening:
Hi.
I need to know why an empty string completes the heart shape? what is happening?

Your code so far


<style>
.heart {
  position: absolute;
  margin: auto;
  top: 0;
  right: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  left: 0;
  background-color: pink;
  height: 50px;
  width: 50px;
  transform: rotate(-45deg); ;
}
.heart::after {
  background-color: pink;
  content: "";
  border-radius: 50%;
  position: absolute;
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  top: 0px;
  left: 25px;
}
.heart::before {
  content:"";
  background-color: pink;
  border-radius: 50%;
  position: absolute;
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  top: -25px;
  left: 0px;
}
</style>
<div class = "heart"></div>

I think it just needs something to build on, even an empty string. If you put nothing there, then it just ignores it because you aren’t adding any content. You put in the empty string to fool it into thinking you are putting something there so it will do everything else you want. Yes, it’s a little hacky.
