I totally forgot to write about this in my last post, but I think should also get its own post.

While going through coding dojo you can take these optional tests that help determine how far you are and what you may still need to work on.  This Friday we had the one on HTML, CSS and jQuery which is the yellow belt test. We four hours to replicate this website from an image and had to then send a video explaining our code.  Sadly, I did not have enough time to do the video. I got a majority of the site done, except the jQuery and a few CSS things still needed to be done. I stayed focus on one thing that was not working for way too long and only in the last hour did I say enough and moved on. the top part of my page was perfect and I would not do anything to change it, other than the jQuery I wanted to add for mouseovers.  The that I had was that the container and content divs were pushing the divs and such in my content div down instead of including them. After making CSS changes I decided I had to have an extra </div> somewhere. I did a visual check and saw nothing then I ran my html through the validator which found some errors I fixed that had nothing to do with my issue. So I said enough and started to work on the body of the page…. Then at about 5 minutes till time was up I just said screw it lets give those divs a crazy height…. that worked… I was so mad and frustrated with myself, but at least I know another thing to try in troubleshooting.
