The first list item falls to the bottom.

When I preview todo.php in the browser... The first item drop to the bottom of the page wrapped in a <pre></pre> tag. Why does this happen?

// My Code
include 'list.php';

foreach ($list as $key => $item) {
    echo $key . ' = ' . $item['title'] . "<br>\n";

echo "<table>";
echo "<tr>";
echo "<th>Title</th>";
echo "<th>Priority</th>";
echo "<th>Due Date</th>";
echo "<th>Complete</th>";
echo "</tr>";
foreach ($list as $item) {
    echo "<tr>";
    echo "<td>" . $item['title'] . "</td>\n";
    echo "<td>" . $item['priority'] . "</td>\n";
    echo "<td>" . $item['due'] . "</td>\n";
    echo "<td>";
    if ($item['complete']) {
        echo "Job's done!";
    } else {
        echo "More work?!";
    echo "</td>\n";
    echo "</tr>";
echo '</table>';

Is that just Chrome being silly? It looks fine in page source, but I see it's been wrapped (like so <pre>0 = Laundry</pre>) in Chrome DevTools Elements tab. So 0 = Laundry is at the bottom of the page. How do I prevent this from happening?

Which track are you in, give me a URL?

There is some explanation here. Looks like it is chrome. StackOverflow

I just wrapped the loop in a div to fix it.

echo '<div>';
foreach ($list as $key => $item) {
    echo $key . '=' . $item['title'] . "<br />\n";
echo '</div>';
