Long story short, you’ve added too much specificity in your CSS. You have the following:

input [type=“checkbox”]

By writing your CSS this way, you are target all element types of checkbox that are children of an input tag. That’s not what you want to do. You simply want to target the type that are checkbox.

Ok, I deleted quotes, and Input. Code worked with:

[type= checkbox] {
margin: 10px 0px 15px 0px;
}

Where can I read more about such specificity and how to properly apply it in my code? Thnx so much!
