I get the following error messages when trying to move windows to either of the workspaces "Web" and "Code":

ERROR: Expected one of these tokens: 'window', 'container', 'to', 'workspace', 'output', 'mark', 'scratchpad', 'left', 'right', 'up', 'down', 'position', 'absolute'
ERROR: Your command: move container to Web
ERROR:                                 ^^^

Here is the part of my configuration where I configured these workspaces:

# move focused container to workspace
bindsym $mod+Shift+1 move container to Web
bindsym $mod+Shift+2 move container to Code

bindsym $mod+1 workspace Web
bindsym $mod+2 workspace Code

It should be

bindsym $mod+Shift+1 move container to workspace Web
bindsym $mod+Shift+2 move container to workspace Code

You're missing the keyword "workspace".
