CSS Float problem

Hi, When I increase the font-size of the symbol in the class .handle it loses vertical-alignment and moves down. Need help, any suggestion appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Your margins for the symbol are causing it to overflow onto the next line. Adjusting your margins should fix this issue. In this case, I just set it to 0.

p.symbol {
float: right; 
font-size: 2em;
margin: 0;

Not a problem, happy to help :)
