I’m studying on HTML DOCUMENT STANDARDS/10.Linking to Same Page
I followed the intructions and system agreed to pass to next level,but when I checked back, I noticed something unexpected. When I click on the media at the local host side ( third line under The Brown Bear’ , it does not directly go to the line of media ( over the bear photo) What I see at top of the page is the line writing ‘3. Canada’ .Does that happen, because it’s the end of the page or is there a problem? Because other two links take you directly to the top of the page. Hope I did not ask complicated?:slight_smile:

Why on this exercise the ordered list opening tag is <ul> and not <ol> like previously explained?

#15

UL is unordered list with bullets, as opposed to ordered list with numbers or letters.

#16

Thanks! I just figured it out :relieved:

How come you need to use the # symbol when referencing an id tag? In the lesson we have it

. Wouldn’t we just be able to call "href=“habitat”? Or does the “#” only apply to ids?

#18

That link will go nowhere. We must include the hash so the browser knows to look for a page fragment with id="habitat".

Correct, only ids in the markup. In CSS they symbolize the id selector.

#habitat {

}
