How to create responsive layouts with Flexbox

Flexbox is a relatively new front-end feature that makes building a website layout (and making it responsive!) much, much easier than it used to be. In days past, to build a website, you would have to use float grids or even tables to make your layout look like it should. And those methods aren’t the best for responsive design– making sure the website looks good across desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.

content: close-quote;

to add quotation marks. To add these symbols before and after the paragraph or text we use

.qoute::after {
content: close-quote;
top: 1rem;
left: 13rem;

To make the signature line responsive, we will use
