CSS Containers

+1 Stuart Abbott · July 2, 2015
Hi all,

I really hope that this has not been asked before (I couldn't find anything).

I am looking at a piece of CSS available from HTML5Up and I am trying to get familiar with the code, but something has confused me and it is this:

.container.\31 25\25 {
width: 100%;
max-width: 1200px;
min-width: 960px;

Having done some research I understand that this it the container with class 125%, but my question is why would this exist? Surely 100% is as big as a container could possibly be? I am missing something obvious but I am unsure what.

Ahhh I think I may have found the answer. Is it anything to do with how zoomed in the website happens to be? So if the site is zoomed in up to a maximum of 125%, the content will fit on screen without an issue but any larger would result in a horizontal bar being introduced?
