Hi Andrea Boscolo ,
It's not a stupid question. We are all learning here, and believe me the only way is making two things: questions and A LOT of mistakes. :)
The answer lies in the function print, which will basically get the element with the output id, and then replace its content (or in other words, its innerHTML ) with whatever you pass as an argument, in this case the html variable. Therefore, the text will go into the #output element.
Does that make sense?
