Tell us what’s happening:
am trying to get my main-section’d id’s to match the header but every time I use the right text it still says its wrong , I’ve added underscores to the spaces in the header text but that still doesn’t work. Can someone please explain what am doing wrong.

Your code so far

Hi, this happened to me as well. Another member then kindly explained that apparently, some browser extensions interfere with the tests and can lead to false errors. You could therefore try in another browser. Alternatively, copy your entire code, paste it somewhere else, disable extensions that might interfere, reset the test, paste back in and try again.
If you still get an error, you could try pasting your code in a tool like codepen, which might help you debugging.
Are you able to pass then?

Hi!

Firstly, you should not have multiple nav elements. You should only have one nav element.
Your nav links should have text inside the anchor elements, it should not be an attribute/value.
This W3schools page may help you understand how navbars can be strutured. Note you do not have to use ul/li elements and anchor elements will work fine.

<a class="nav-link" text="CSS"></a>

Secondly, the html element should enclose everything but the doctype declaration and you should have a head and body element.

<html lang="en">
    </html>

This is also not the correct way to target an id in a css file. I suggest looking this up on w3schools or going back to one of the earlier lessons.

navbar
{
text-align: left;
}

am I meant to get rid of the (text=“CSS”) ? I read the article on css and I still don’t understand.

Okay so if you check this list of existing html attributes, text is not one of them. This code doesn’t do anything as the text attribute doesn’t exist.

You don’t need a text attribute as it doesn’t do anything basically.

Also you should only use each id once in a html document.

  <section class="main-section" id="CSS">
       <header>CSS</header>

      <section class="main-section" id="CSS"> 

This lesson instruction:

Each section element with the class of main-section should also have an id that corresponds with the text of each header contained within it.

Means you should have section elements that each have a different id that matches with the text of its individual header. i.e.

<section id='css' class='main-section'>
  <header>
    <h2>css</h2>
  </header>
</section>
<section id='html' class='main-section'>
  <header>
    <h2>html</h2>
  </header>
</section>
