Hi there, I’ve done a few steps in the The & Selector in Mixins chapter, but I’m not seeing any changes to the card visual on the right bottom corner.

This is the screen that I’m seeing.
Am I seeing what I’m supposed to be seeing in this exercise?
Because I’m not seeing any visual changes to the rectangle (nothing happens when I hover), I couldn’t see any effects with the “backface-visibility” CSS property that was incorporated to the code through the exercise.

By the way, I tried opening the same page in Chrome, Chrome Canary, Safari, and Firefox…but they all showed the same white plane rectangle with the overflown text (exactly the same look as on the above screenshot).
