              <!-- :empty -->
<section class="example-cntr empty">
    <h1>CSS <code>:empty</code> pseudo-class</h1>
    <p>The <code>:empty</code> pseudo-class targets elements that have no content of any kind in them, at all.</p>
    <p>If it has any type of character, even a space, then the element is <span class="underline">not</span> considered empty.</p>
    <p>In the following example <span class="red">Red</span> boxes have content and <span class="yellow">Yellow</span> boxes are empty:</p>
    <div class="flex-ctnr">
        <div>I have content, thus I'm red…</div>
        <div> </div> <!-- A space is considered content so it’s red -->
        <div></div> <!-- Totally empty element so it’s yellow -->
        <div><!-- This comment inside isn’t considered content so it’s yellow --></div>
