Tribute Page assistance needed

Hi, Iv had a really quick go at this today. It passes the tests but what im not sure of is why the background of the text ‘some info i lifted from wikipedia’ wraps the text but the other borders go from left to right of the page. Please can someone advise me of why this is?

Also please ignore the rgb color, I just wanted to have a play with rgb

Your page looks good @I_cant_dance. Some things to revisit;

  • Codepen provides the boilerplate for you. It only expects the code you’d put within the body element in the HTML editor. (No need to include the body tags). For anything you want to add to the <head> element click on the ‘Settings’ button, then HTML and add it into the ‘Stuff for <head>’ box.
    • For instance, links to fonts go in the box labeled ‘Stuff for <head>’
  • Run your HTML code through the W3C validator.
    • There are HTML syntax/coding errors you should be aware of and address. (You cannot make up your own HTML elements. There’s no such tag/element as p1, p2 or h)
  • Codepen provides validators for HTML, CSS and JS. Click on the chevron in the upper right of each section and then click on the respective ‘Analyze’ link.
    • The one for CSS is good. Use it and address the issue(s).
    • (The one for HTML misses things which is why I recommend W3C)
  • Accessibility is about being accessible to all users. Review the giving meaningful text to links lesson. For a more thorough explanation read Web Accessibility in Mind.
    • vivziepop” is not accessible

Maybe having a valid HTML element will help.

Your background is very busy. And the text in the little grey box almost blends in. My vision isn’t that bad but I’m kinda going cross-eyed trying to read it
