I am trying to style the dots, but I see numbered blocks instead. I have saved a print screen of what I see on the page

I can't seem to paste the screen shot. So here is my description:

I see these buttons on my page, but can't seem to locate them on index.html and remove them from web page.

<button type="button" data-role="none" class="slick-prev" style="display: inline-block;">Previous</button> <button type="button" data-role="none" class="slick-next" style="display: inline-block;">Next</button>

In addition, I have added the .slick-dots li styling on main.css, but dots do not display.
What displays are numbers 1, 2, 3 formatted as Previous and Next buttons (block with numbers inside). Is something overriding my styling and I can't see it.

If you can't locate the buttons in the index.html, where did you get the code pasted in above:question:

We will need to see more of the code to help with the style problem. Make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Your code uses several resources that are not included here, and your issue cannot be replicated with only the HTML.

To share everything at once, make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here. If you're not already using workspaces, porting your project into one might be a good idea unless you have a live URL where it is hosted you can share.

Steven,

I resolved the issue. I had the normalize stylesheets in the incorrect order within the index.html file.
Thanks for your assistance.
