Tribute Page: Dr. Norman Borlaug

Hi!
Today is exactly the 10th day since I started learning html + css. This is my first
project. I tried to replicate the project as an example as much as possible.
What can you say about my project?

P.S.
Question:
I enclosed the quotes below the list in blockquote, and indicated the authorship through the cite tag, but could figure and figcaption be used for this purpose?

Welcome to the forums @yevhenii_tsvietkov. Your page looks good. Some things to revisit;

  • Run your HTML code through the W3C validator.
    • There are HTML coding errors you should be aware of and address.
    • Since copy/paste from codepen you can ignore the first warning and first two errors.
  • Do not use the <br> element to force line breaks or spacing. That’s what CSS is for.
  • Accessibility is about being accessible to all users. Review the lesson about giving meaningful text to links. For a more thorough explanation read Web Accessibility in Mind.
    • β€œwikipedia entry” is not accessible

On a side note, don’t replicate the sample projects. They show one way the project can be completed. The instructions say your project should be β€œfunctionally similar” and to β€œgive it your own personal style”.
