Item 15 on page 68 is a little confusing. In item 14 it says to delete all the "shields", but in Item 15 it says to delete the shields only for Location, Hours and Specialties. This is not a big deal in itself, but by the time I get to Item 19, I cannot get DW to display h2 when redefining the HTML element. I keep ending up with the title "About the Cafe" defined as a paragraph, instead of h2. Twice I have retraced my steps but still cannot do it. What would be helpful would be a listing of what the HTML code should look like at this stage - without that clue, any error in this long series of steps and the user is lost. Thanks, Frank

Note from the Author or Editor:
step 15 paragraph 12 remove sentence "Repeat this step for the gold shields besids the words Location, Hours and Specialties."

2nd paragraph

The completed version of map.html is incomplete. It does not include the link back to the Home page. Also, I believe I correctly followed the steps to create the link to return to the Home page (index.html) from map.html but the link is not working. In doing research to locate the cause of the problem, I found that the supposedly final version of map.html did not include the link information.

Note from the Author or Editor:
We've fixed this in the download files.
