What's wrong with my CSS? Only displays in edit mode.



Site URL: https://koskinen.co/test-page


I'm trying to create fancier highlights for my page.

However, I only see them correctly when in "7.1 page edit mode" (reference images attached).


Here's the code:

Code block

The highlight <span class="highlighttest">of the day</span>


/* Better Highlight */

.highlighttest {
    display: inline-block;
    position: relative;

.highlighttest:before {
    content: "";
    position: absolute;
    top: 14px;
    right: -2px;
    left: -2px;
    bottom: 1px;
    background: #43A6DB;
    opacity: .5;
    z-index: -1;


Here's the URL:

What might be the problem?
