    hi all

    can you please check out this page…

    The h1 element seems to be woking fine, but I’m having problems with the p element. Here’s the css and html…

    My bloody review! This is the 2011 review of Steve Deer; Art Director and Designer at McCann Manchester.

    List your main achievements over the past twelve months.

    Over the past twelve months I have had a fine art photo achieve "People's Choice Winner" in the Canon Professional Network photography competition. The same image won a "Highly Commended" in Landscape Photographer of the Year, published in the book, and exhibited at the National Gallery in London.

    As you can see, I’ve reset the body font size to 62.5% in the css so that I can work easier with a fixed 10px base size. I’ve set my p element to 4 ems (so I should have a 40px paragraph type size), but it’s not working (seems to stick at 10px) also the left/right padding (48px)doesn’t seem to work!

    Your learn’d would be much appreciated.


    I could be wrong but shouldn’t there be a div in there somewhere?

    The p margin isn’t working because you haven’t closed the h1 tag bracket


    paulie… no need for a div… it was the h1 error, many thanks all.
