I'm trying to figure out how Guil got the text behind the div. Couldn't find it in the CodePen example.

Looked in CodePen and found nothing.




div {

    -- Predefined Keyword Examples -- 

    background-color: red;
    background-color: green;
    background-color: blue;
    background-color: lightblue;
    background-color: tomato;
    background-color: sandybrown;

    -- Hexadecimal Examples -- 

    background-color: #FF0033;


    -- RGBa Example -- 

    background-color: rgba(65,105,255, .9);


/*  -- HSLa Example --  */

    background-color: hsla(130,50%,35%,.1);

Inside codepen, if you click on the gearing icon next to the HTML text you'll see a window with a space named stuff for < head >

It seems he added some styles there to display the text. Check the styles below, that's what I've just copied from there.

div:after {
    content: "I'm behind the div!";
    font-size: 2em;
    position: absolute;
    top: 40%;
    left: 35%;
    z-index: -1;
