Hi, Spaces in CSS and HTML are not ignored by Codecademy code editor. I waste time chasing nonexistent errors! I attach screenshot of one URL but this bug is all over in CSS and HTML lessons. https://p27.zdusercontent.com/attachment/1030455/mnwq5qWi2jnPb9kxBrP0d2CaQ
Codecademy support reply was: ‘It seems like the way our engineers have built this course requires that the spacing be uniform throughout the code. We try to make sure that we have a standardized syntax so that our learners are all learning in the same way- even if you’re able to code differently in future environments you work in.’
“Thanks for prompt reply but I strongly disagree.
Space has NO standardized syntax. Not by Codecademy HTML CSS lessons anyway…
On contrary there is an artcile https://www.codecademy.com/forum_questions/53d665b78c1ccc644a0027a8 stating just the opposite.
that says semicolons also optional. Those rules confirmed by W3C CSS and HTML standards and validators. What supports your point ?”
On that Codecademy support bounced me back my error description and referred me to this Codecademy Forum.
