Question about buttons - Add Font Awesome Icons to all of our Buttons

Tell us what’s happening:
In this section of the tutorial, I wrote the code as follows and it past test.
The problem is, from what I saw on the screen, the icon on the button seems to have pushed the text out of the button, so for example, it shows “delet” instead of “delete” and the last letter"e" is out of the button, why is that?
Doesn’t class=“btn” automatically adjust width?
Thanks.

Your code so far

You’re not supposed to put Info and Delete inside the <i> tags for the icons. Look at the first button.

But even after you fix that, some letters from “Delete” will still probably be dropped. There simply isn’t too much room in the button to contain the icon and the word.

thank you for the reply! I thought the “btn-block” class would automatically shrink the word or start a new line, would it not?

btn-block makes the button a block element and sets its width to 100%, so it occupies the full width of its container (see bottom right of the image below).
