Step 2, sample HTML code

In the step 2 sample HTML, the first line reads: <div id=”header-acme”>. There is no style rule for a "header-acme" class in style.css. Either this HTML code needs to read <div id=”header”> to match style.css, or style.css must have its .header rule changed to .header-acme.

Step 1, sample CSS code

In the sample CSS code, in the style rule for the .replace class, ( background-image: url(../images/sprite.png); ) the url should not have two dots (to go up one directory level) before the images directory. This is also wrong in the sample file screen.css.
