5 start rating system

I'm trying to follow the example in this site: http://codepen.io/rogie/pen/jgrIu

However, instead of getting the desired result as in the example I'm getting the following: (instead of being able to click in the start, I get the start and a clickable check in top of the start)

enter image description here

I'm really new and I would appreciate any help.

THANKS

I created the html file with the following code:

<html>
<head>
<style>

  • The sample you are referencing uses LESS. It won't work in a web browser unless you compile it into regular css, like this:

    .star-rating {
      font-size: 0;
      white-space: nowrap;
      display: inline-block;
      width: 250px;
