In your CSS, look at your .copyright entry.

You are using "float: both;" which is invalid syntax. You can only float right or left.

INSTEAD, use "clear: both;" which will CLEAR the floating on BOTH the left and the right. Keep in mind that you can clear JUST the left or the right, but the prompt wants you to clear both. Take a look at what ".clearfix:after" does if you think that helps.

So once again, using clear:both; INSTEAD OF float: both; will fix the issue.

Hopefully this helps!
