I have a simple example of HTML/CSS. Due to javascript being active in a web page, and having to run the file locally I HAVE to include the comment <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet --> at the top of my web page. However when I applied it, it broke my CSS.

1st code. Two divs, one centres the text and tries to border it. It manages to centre but does not contain border...see first code snippet

2nd code snippet straight below first, includes the <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet --> at the top. The page does not apply centre formatting and does have a border around it...
Confused, can anyone help?

This text is supposed to be centred and have a border round it. More text to line break. More text to line break. More text to line break. More text to line break. More text to line break.

Try to put the comment after the doctype declaration.

Doctype must be the first line on an html document
