Why does the footer change its pseudo-element?
I see that at the beginning the pseudo-element for footer is footer::before but after everything is combined it is changed to footer::after. I'm confused as to why this change was made.
Didn't understand that part bro.
Oh, that's great... thank you

I know this is a late answer but in this example they remain the same. However, this link might help! https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_pseudo_elements.asp

What makes it look the same is because we make the ::after element absolute to the relative container, so both ::after and ::before will have the same start point.
