Python Django Basics Final Details Content Field

Django filter 'linebreaks' didn't produce the same pattern of html tags as Kenneth's.

This is my code from learning_site>courses>views.py. The linebreaks filter should seemingly produce <p> tags around each line in the content field.

{% extends "layout.html" %}

{% block title%}{{step.title}}-{{step.course.title}}{% endblock %}
{% block content%}
{% endblock %}

However, when I highlighted 'Python' in the browser just as Kenneth did, then right-clicked and selected 'Inspect', my html looked quite different from his. Namely, the presence of the <br> tags

    "Launch the shell with Python"
    "You can exit the shell using "exit()" or "quit()"
    "You can also exit the shell by pressing CTRL + d

Can anyone shed some light on these differences?

Two enter hits on the keyboard are rendered as <p> tag, while one enter hit is rendered as <br>.

Thanks so much Haydar Al-Rikabi ! It's fun but hard learning all this by yourself! Your feedback is truly appreciated :)
