Why is there a gap?

I already set margin of header to be "0 auto", but there is still a white line of space between header and section. How come?


This is the code.

header{ text-align:center; background:blue; margin: 0 auto; }

h1,h2{ color:black; }

nav a{ color:#fff; }

section{ background:orange; }

Would need to see the code to find out why. Could you add the code to codepen.io and paste the link in here?

I got rid of my margins on my website by putting a margin on the universal selector. Failing that, You might be able to sneakily hide it by applying a matching background colour as a temp fix but that depends on your design really,

Extra spacing between elements can be caused by a few things such as line breaks in your markup and margin/padding.

k solved it

we need:

ul,p{ margin:0; }
