CSS CSS Layout Techniques Float Layout Float Layout Challenge

float layout

It looks like we need a clearfix in the header. Give the main-header element the class we created for clearing floats.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Floats</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
</head>
<body>
    <div class="main-wrapper">  
        <header class="main-header">
            <h1 class="main-logo"><a href="#">My Work</a></h1>
            <ul class="main-nav">
                <li><a href="#">Design</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Coding</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Writing</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Hire Me!</a></li>
            </ul>
        </header>
        <div class="primary col">
            <h1>I'm a Designer</h1>
            <p>I design beautiful user interfaces, then bring them to life with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I love including personal photographs of nature, people and everyday things in my designs.</p>
            <p>If you need a front-end designer for your next project, <a href="#">take a look at my work</a>, then <a href="#">get in touch</a>!</p>

        <div class="secondary col">
            <h2>I Also Write</h2>
            <p>I like teaching others about the latest web in technology. So when I'm not designing or coding websites &amp; apps, you'll find me writing <a href="#">articles for my blog</a>.</p>

If I'm understanding correctly, you just need to add the css clearfix to the html header. Since the clearfix is in the .group class, it would look like this...

<header class="main-header group">

If you are suppose to create a new style like you're trying to do, it would look like this...

.main-header {
  clear: both;
}

You are just a little off. 'clear' is not an acceptable value for float.
