That's a bit hard to read.

To make your code readable, use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:

And to facilitate analysis of the issue, you'll also need to include the HTML portion of the code.

You can also share your entire project by making a snapshot of your workspace and posting the link to it here.

It appears you're omitting the "#" syntax to select your id's in your CSS stylesheet. The "." is used to select classes. If you omit the syntax, you get unexpected behavior.

The symbols might not be missing, the lack of formatting likely made them not visible. That's why proper formatting is so important for posted code.

Even without formatting, I spot one likely problem.

One one line, you wrote "gallaery" (with an extra "a") instead of "gallery".
