.sitrep {

You are mixing up classes and ID's.

In your HTML, you give the element the ID of sitrep, whereas you are giving the styles to the elements with the class of siterep.

Try either of the following options and you'll be set :

Changing the element attribute: <div id="sitrep"> to <div class="sitrep">

Changing the CSS to fit the proper elements: .sitrep { to #sitrep {

Happy coding !
