margin-top not adding

Posted 11 August 2012 - 11:26 AM

Hello,


I am following the tutorial series by Nettuts. On day 25, we are working with the 960 grid framework.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title>My Website</title>
	<meta charset="utf-8" />	
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/960_12_col.css">
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/reset.css">	
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/text.css">
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/style.css">
</head>
<body>

	<div class="wrap container_12">
		<header>
			<h1 class="grid_8">My Website</h1>
			<nav>
				<ul class="grid_4">
					<li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
					<li><a href="#">About</a></li>
					<li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
				</ul>
			</nav>
		</header>

		<div class="main">
			<div class="primary grid_8">
				<p>My content goes here</p>
			</div>
			<aside class="grid_4"><ul>
				<li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
				<li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
				<li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
				<li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
				<li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
				<li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
			</ul></aside>
		</div>
	</div>

</body>
</html>


Above is my index.html file and I'm trying to add a 30 px margin-top between the "My content goes here" and the links.


Here are the CSS files that I'm using:

960_col_12.css:

header h1 {

}



Here is where I'm trying to change the margin-top to 30px. For some reason the values are being reset to 0. I have the exact same code as the programmer in the video.

I have attached an image with a black outline around the div tag that I want to add a top margin to.


P.S - .main is the class I'm trying to edit which encompasses the links and content.

Solved by adding a clearfix to the heading class.
