@amanuel2, <div> is the bit you can't read. While it is a block which means:

HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) elements are usually either "block-level" elements or "inline" elements.
A block-level element occupies the entire space of its parent element (container), thereby creating a "block." This article helps to explain what this means.

Browsers typically display the block-level element with a newline both before and after the element.

A block has certain property's, it takes the full space (rather then inline which only take the space they need).

With no semantic meaning is that they don't add anything to the page, we just use them to position other things on the page.
