A list dot/button still appears at left corner at every image, after linking css stylesheet to index.html. Why is it so

Hi, just want to know if there is something wrong with my code. At Nick's video, when he refreshed the webpage after linking css to index.html, the bulleted lists are gone. However when I refreshed my webpage, the list buttons are gone, but now I see a dot/button list at the start of each of the images.They are located on the left upper corner of each image. One dot every image. Here is my code;


<head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Web Pad | Designer</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css"> </head> <body> <header> <a href="index.html"> <h1>Web Pad</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </a> <nav> <ul> <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li> <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li> <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li> </ul> </nav> </h

Hey there,

This is an older video, so Nick is using an older version of normalize.css. As of version 3, the list-styles are no longer removed with normalize.css. These now have to be removed manually in your own Style Sheet. This is done using the list-style-type rule:

ul, ol {
  list-style-type: none;

Hope that clears it up for you. :) :dizzy:

Note for Nick Pettit - Could you possibly add an explanation to the Teacher's Notes clearing this up? This question gets asked very regularly in the Community. If you could... that'd be awesome. Thanks much! :smiley:

Thank you so much for the response.
