Challenge: Step 14

Link to the challenge:

You need to create two new div elements with the classes of eyes-left and eyes-right respectively.

Do not add extra classes to black-mask. This isn’t how you add multiple classes to a html element regardless, I’d advise redoing some of the css markers lesson if you’ve forgotten this.

Also do not put css inside HTML like this, it will not work. I advise looking into how html style tags work as this will help you understand why this will not work.

Finally in the forums solutions are discouraged, they do not help you learn as the do not mean understanding why the code works. (And I say that from experience.)


to add to what @Griff said when the instructions say within the black mask element they do not mean inside the opening tag of the element, they mean in-between the opening and closing tag of the element

<div class="black-mask">

Thank you so much for your input! Appreciate it. Yes I will try to keep that in mind. Sometimes I do get impatient and just want to get to the solution quickly. But understanding is super important if i want to create any future projects of my own!
