HTML How to Make a Website Adding Pages to a Website Add Iconography

why do we set min height to 20px and then background size do 20px x 20px isnt it the same rule twice?


Background -size doesn't directly correlate with the dimensions of the DOM element it is applied to.

The dimensions specified in background-size will not cause that element to grow to those dimensions.

That is why the min-height: 20px; is applied. To give the DOM element some height.

no idea what DOM is and what correlate means but thanks for trying

the DOM is the Document Object Model and the element is the <p>, <h1> , <div>, html element the styling is applied to
