Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 70

Tell us what’s happening:
I have moved my div elements around for about an hour now and I don’t understand the hint " Your new div element should be within the red marker’s div element." after putting it in the element.

Div elements must have a closing “”, I can’t put a closer inside a div element that already has a closing. But making a second div isn’t correct cause it needs to be inside the current div?

Your code so far

Challenge: Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 70

Link to the challenge:

First, don’t make any changes to the HTML that is already there. You might want to restart the step to get the original HTML back.

Then, you just want to add a new div inside of the red marker div, and then give it a class of sleeve. Remember, a div has both an opening and closing tag, so you need to add both of those inside of the red marker div.

Thanks, got it after this. :+1:
