Why Position Images as Pseudo-Elements?
At the 4:30 mark, Guil goes on to explain that we're going to be placing the images for this exercise as pseudo-elements.
My question here is, why would we do that? Is there some specific advantage(s) to this method, or is it simply something different that Guil chose to do? Wouldn't using the "background-position" property do the same thing?
As far as I can tell, the way we where displaying our images was working just fine and this is simply an added complication to this lesson.
Please let me know if I'm wrong.
