#3

How can I but some space between the image and the video below it? I tried the
tag but it did not work.


#4

What is a raw text? I’m new here and really excited!!!


#5

I have same question. I try to use the break line tag (
).


#6

How do we know what the appropriate height and width should be? What are the units for these dimensions? And how do these map onto page size?


#7

why the “Video not supported” is placed between the opening and closing of the tag ?


#8

Why are the links in quotation marks? I removed them and the webpage works just fine.


#9

I can not find a way to alter the video tag attributes so that the message “Video not supported” is shown. I only get the broken video placeholder in the same width and height that are specified in attributes. What must be done to see the text?


#10

I am unable to complete the Video Not Supported section of the HTMl Video section. It looks exactly like the example, just with the text the exercises want.

</video src=“https://s3.amazonaws.com/codecademy-content/courses/freelance-1/unit-1/lesson-2/htmlcss1-vid_brown-bear.mp4” width=“320” height=“240” controls>
Video Not Supported
<//video>

The duplicate /'s is there so you can see the actual text, and not the outcome of my text.


#11

Question: Why are there quotation marks around the numbers 320 and 240 for width and height in the opening video tag? I removed them from the tag the code still works. Is this simply a coding convention?
