I have the following code for a wordpress theme. For some reason an arrow appears on the page. I originally thought it was because of the thumbnail but once I removed the thumbnail it still appeared but in a different spot. What I'm aiming for is have the blog post feature image appear left and the blog post info and excerpt float right. I can get that to work fine but there's an arrow < coming out of no where. Any suggestions what I've done wrong? Thanks!
