CSS CSS Foundations Advanced Selectors UI Element States Pseudo-Classes

I think I've found an issue with Chrome rendering the UI

So after completing the end of this video's coding -- styling the adjacent labels once the user selects the radio button -- for some reason the "3" in "Option 3" floats below the Option 1 label in the UI. However when using Firefox, this issue doesn't exist and the "3" remains within the width of the div element.

Hope this isn't an actual issue - thanks.

Hi Alborz,

Could you please post the code you have as without it we can't say for sure what's going on.

Hi Chris,

Here's my code below:

            <input name="radio" id="radio1" type="radio"><label for="radio1">Option 1</label>
            <input name="radio" id="radio2" type="radio"><label for="radio2">Option 2</label>
            <input name="radio" id="radio3" type="radio"><label for="radio3">Option 3</label>
        <input type="submit" name="submit">

I just tested your above code and saw a consistent result, the below screenshot is from Chrome 37 on Windows.

No rendering issue in Google Chrome

I am using firefox and had the same issue with dangling "3", I changed the form width to 326px and resolved the issue.

I apologize I should have been been specific and included that the issue occurs when the user selects a radio button; in Chrome (I tested on Version 37.0.2062.124 on a Mac) when I select a radio button, the "3" floats below "Option 1". In Firefox this doesn't occur...

Below I included the screenshot. I also tested using the "final" files from the lesson, showing the same result.

I see the same behaviour, also on a Mac with Chrome, using Workspaces.

I've noticed a few other peculiarities similar to this elsewhere in these tutorials and chalked it up to browser rendering issues.

I also had to change the font-size to 15.

Hello, I have encountered the same problem with the number 3 floating on the next line instead of the same line.

I tried Firefox and Safari and I'm getting the same error.

I'm curious to see why this is happening.

I think that what may have happened is that the CSS was corrected for the web browser view in the video, but not the written code. I went back to check the codepen view of the brower and the dangling 3 is there too after the "checked" input is added. So to sum up the changes I made:

form { margin: 80px auto; width: 326px; color: steelblue;

Here I changed the width from 320px to 326px, this corrects the line so all numbers are on one line.

input[type="radio"]:checked + label { font-size: 15px; font-weight: bold; } I changed the font-size from 20px to 15px, this corrects the dangling 3 when this part is added.

I know this isn't the real solution to this issue, but changing the font-size of the radio labels does prevent that annoying dangling "3" from occurring. Also, changing the width of the form works, too. Not the perfect solution, but it is easier on the eyes at least.
