Build a Simple Dynamic Site with Node.js - Code Challenge

Can't seem to get this to work - works OK on my console

function merge(content, values) { for(var key in values) { content = content.replace("%first_name%", values[key]); } return content; } module.exports.merge = merge;

function merge(content, values) {
  for(var key in values) { 
    content = content.replace("%" + key + "%", values[key]); 
  }
  return content;
}


module.exports.merge = merge;

The challenge asks you to write a function that replaces all the keys in the content, not only the first_name...
P.S Just finished it a couple of hours ago; it's a tough course.

Thanks for that answer Yuval, I had completely missed the point about it being all keys, I've just spent 15 minutes trying to work out what was wrong before a google search led me here.
