Using either an embedded style sheet or inline styles for all formatting.
Use a <div> for each of the 4 verse containers and the outer container.
The title “Yesterday” uses an <h2> tag with a 16pt Arial font that is blue and italicized. Do not use an <i> tag.
The entire song is embedded in a container that is 600 x 280 pixels, has a two pixel solid blue border, and a five pixel padding. The background color is #F0F0F0.
The outer <div>'s first child is the <h2>. The 4 child <div>'s follow, declared in the order listed below.
The yellow section:
has a background color of "yellow"
floats to the left
has a 200 pixel width
has a 10 pixel padding
has a right margin of 10 pixels, with all other margins set to 0
The section with no background color has no CSS styling.
The orange section:
has a background color of "orange"
is positioned at (110px, 200px) with absolute positioning
has a 200 pixel width
has a 10 pixel padding
The orange-red section:
has a background color of "rgb(255, 80, 0)"
has white text
floats to the right
has a 200 pixel width
has a 10 pixel padding
has a right margin of 40 pixels, a top margin of 20 pixels, and all other margins set to 0
Do not use <br> anywhere in your HTML.

What I have tried:

#main {

background-color: #f0f0f0;

width: 600px;

height: 280px;

border: blue;

border-width: 2px;

What is the question (as if I didn't know)?
Member 14868647 20-Jun-20 12:43pm
I need help making the html code and css for the steps listed above.

See below.

You seem to be missing some basic steps. Please go and read a CSS and HTML tutorial. Just google it.

What, like the one linked to in solution 1 back in June when this question was asked?

Why did you feel the need to resurrect this question just to repeat the advice from the existing solution?
<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>CSS Practice</title>

body {
background-color: linen;

background-color: yellow;
float: left;

background-color: orange;
position: absolute;

background-color: rgb(255, 80, 0);
color:rgb(255, 255, 255);
float: right;
background-color: #F0F0F0;
padding:5px 5px 5px 5px;
border: solid 2px blue;

<div class="container">
<div class="yellow">Yesterday, All those backups seemed a waste of pay. Now my database has gone away. Oh I believe in yesterday.</div>

<div class="noback">Suddenly, There's not half the files there used to be, And there's a milestone hanging over me. The system crashed so suddenly. I pushed something wrong, What it was I could not say.</div>

<div class="orange">Now all my data's gone and I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.</div>

<div class="orange-red">Yesterday, The need for back-ups seemed so far away. I knew my data was all here to stay, Now I believe in yesterday.</div>

Doing homework for someone is not helping them. It's removing the point of doing the assignment themselves.
