Should be a semicolon after “black”

ronpat,
Thanks. Do have suggestions on the topic of the content for div having no border and not positioned to the right of the page?

Sorry, I don’t understand the question.

Have you read our posting basics, yet. If not, please do.

Thanks, reviewing the format and I will follow up shortly.

ronpat,
Issue resolved and that you for your assistance. I signed up on CodePen as suggested. Thanks.

correction: thank

@lstborne: when you post code on the forums, you need to format it so it will display correctly.

You can highlight your code, then use the </> button in the editor window, or you can place three backticks ``` (top left key on US/UK keyboards) on a line above your code, and three on a line below your code. I find this approach easier, but unfortunately some European and other keyboards don’t have that character.

I’ve formatted the code in your first post for you.

thank you.
