Floating Values make a mess
So I am trying to make a navigation bar but I am having problems trying to float my unordered list to the right.
I have the following code http://codepen.io/anon/pen/ldrLH CSS starts at line #426, everything before it is normalize.css
When I float left the ul, it makes the black nav invisible.

Hey Alejandro, I know of two possible fixes for this.
1st: Using the "clearfix" method: http://codepen.io/anon/pen/lEsKH
2nd: Text-align everything in your container to the right rather than using float: http://codepen.io/anon/pen/KfmJl
Maybe someone else can let us know which solution (or other) is currently the preferred method. You can read more about the clear property here: http://css-tricks.com/all-about-floats/ under the section called The Great Collapse for the issue you are seeing.
Hope this help!
Thank you so much!
