Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

Babel is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

  <h1>Side-By-Side Positioning Demo</h1>
  <div class="ib">These two divs are positioned next to one another using <code>display: inline-block</code></div>
  <div class="ib">Notice the space between them. It occurs because of my carriage return in the HTML which I've used to keep the code organized. I've used a reset to insure no elements should have any default margins or padding. (I did add a bottom margin to make it easier to read.) This space is actually a space character rendered just as it would be between two inline elements.</div>
  <br />
  <div class="float">These two are positioned using <code>float: left.</code></div>
  <div class="float">You can see that, even though the elements are spaced in the code, the space is not actually rendered on the page. This may not be a huge deal in these first examples, but...</div>
  <br />  
  <div class="ib half">What if I want my side-by-side elements to take up the full width of the parent element? I can set the width of each to 50%, right?</div>
  <div class="ib half">Wrong! Because, together, the two inline block elements will add up to 100% of the available width, but that doesn't account for the space between.</div>
  <br />  
  <div class="float half">If I do the same thing with floated elements...</div>
  <div class="float half">The two elements are side-by-side just as I intended and fill the entire width of the parent (which, in this case, is the same as the width of the viewport.</div>
