Normally if you have little red dots under a certain word or peice of code. It means that this is wrong and that the red dots are telling you to correct the error to go to the next level. Thats my understanding anyways. Unless anyone else states differently.

Thanks Zack! I think what I'll do is figure out how to take a screen shot and I'll show you. Thankyou again.

Is this happening to you inside the code challenge? It sounds like the spell checker in your web browser, which you can definitely ignore.

Thankyou Milo for responding so quickly. Yes the red dots appear in the code challenge. Only that they appear on lines of code that has already been written. So.. while I'm entering new code following new instructions red dots appear on lines below. I wish I could take a screen shot. Strangely enough I may or may not pass the exercise with the red dots. Thanks again
