Confusion: Why are my footer, div, body, and html closing elements highlighted? Help, I'm gonna cry.

All of my elements are opening and closing just fine, at least I believe so. Help is appreciated greatly!

You forgot to close your Twitter and Facebook img-Eelements.

My footer is now functioning but the /div, /body, and /html are still highlighted. :/

It also looks like you're missing an opening div, body, and html element although the code didn't render correctly. You should edit your original question and format it similar to the image below (except use html instead of css):


Thanks, fellas. <highfive>
