JavaScript

Line Breaks

After running the script and inspecting the code in the browser, it seems as though the Javascript printed the ordered list in a nice format with each list item on a different line to the HTML. I am confused because we didn't tell the loop print the list items on different lines. Is the inspect tool simply displaying the code in this fashion although we don't have the list items on different lines in the HTML, or is the JavaScript printing out the list items to different lines in our HTML without us telling it to?

Lines in an HTML file don't correspond to lines shown on the page.

By default, list items appear on the page on separate lines no matter how they appear in the HTML file.

For specific help, always show your code or link to a snapshot, and provide a link to the course page if the question relates to a course.
