@kev Your 512KB club banner has href set to “taget”. The typo is present even in the example codepen for the banners.

@thumb good catch, thanks! Just fixed it in both places.

@kev The way I do it is always start with padding, which I never want. I then get pissed and change it to margin. I see nothing wrong with that.

@kev don't forget to cover the weird margin behavior of an h1 element with a margin at the top of the document causing what appears to be a margin applied to the body tag. 😉
