CSS Framework Basics Prototyping with Bootstrap Building Modal Windows and Forms

Why does the modal window span the entire width of the window?

<!-- Modal -->

<div class="modal fade" id="textmodal"> <div class="modal-dialogue"> <div class="modal-content">

        <div class="modal-header">
           <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>

At the very top of your code on line 1, you have spelt "dialog" wrong.

I've tested your code with the correct spelling and it works.

 <div class="modal-dialog">

This is happening for me too, and I haven't solved by poking around the code and adding container classes or css rules. Spans the full width with no padding/margin (or so it appears) around it at all, with a bit of a graphical glitch near the bottom that looks like a white straight line outside the rounded corners.

I used the start folder download for this video and, to the best of my knowledge, added code exactly as shown in the video. Using Brackets with Chrome live preview.

Anyone know?
