CSS

'container' and 'clearfix'

It sounds as though container, and clearfix are separate entities but they aren't.

You all are totally right, I'm a newbie getting familiar with DIVs w/o the assistance of a WYSIWYG,... and made two COMPLETELY separate div classes that looked like this:

<div class='container'> <div class='clearfix'>

*instead of

<div class='container clearfix'>

All is good. Thanks for clarifying James.

I'm a bit confused what has you confused. Container and clearfix are and would have separate styles in the CSS, and it wants you to put both class as a div around that element.
