Hi folks,

I'm currently taking a Udemy course in HTML & CSS and there's what looks like a simple query wrecking my head.

I'm trying to float my section to the right and keep 'aside' on the left.

This is what the webpage should look like https://www.dropbox.com/s/7jb9kbss58u0bxd/UDEMY.png?dl=0

I'd be super grateful if anyone could tell me where I'm going wrong.

There are few errors in the CSS, first at line 17 of the HTML page fix this:

header h1 { font-size: 48px;
    } type="text/css">

By removing type="text/css">. Then inside the css file at line 79:

nav li:hover {
    background: blue;

nav li:nth-child(even) a {
    color: red;
}

You are not closing the brackets:

nav li:hover {
    background: blue;
}

nav li:nth-child(even) a {
    color: red;
}

At the end of the file it's missing another closing bracket:

@media only screen and (min-width : 320px) and (max-width: 767px) {
/* Styles */

When in doubt you can use the CSS validator:
