this makes an arrow that brings the user back to the top of the page. how fun is that!

<h1 id="top">this is the top of the page</h1>
<a href="#top"><div class="arrow-up"></div></a>
<a href="#top">top</div></a>
.arrow-up {
    width: 0;
    height: 0;
    border-left: 52px solid transparent;
    border-right: 52px solid transparent;
    border-bottom: 52px solid #0f0;
    margin: 0 auto;

Hi John, in your code there's and errore here:

<a href="#top">top</div></a>

the open tag <div> is missing. Fix it with this:

<a href="#top"><div>top</div></a>


yes, i see that now andrea, ty. I found that arrow thing and thought " I wonder if i can put the div that makes the arrow in a back to top link" and it worked! except when I was pasting it I missed opening div tag.
