SitePoint Code Challenge: CSS — Things Are About to Get Dicey

Sarah Hawk

We’re running a series of code challenges on the SitePoint Forums, and this week’s challenge is to create a die face using the following HTML:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<title>Dicey Challenge</title>
<style type="text/css">

You will need to set the containing box to position relative, then absolutely position the six child divs within it and user border radius to transform them into circles. Your result should look something like this…

Dice challenge

Advanced Level Challenge
