This code challenge does not recognize that my script is correct. It runs correctly in a browser.

for (var i = 4; i <= 456; i++) { console.log(i); }

for (var i = 4; i <= 456; i++) {

The problem with testing in a browser is that the browser has no idea what the criteria are for passing.

The instructions asked for "the numbers 4 to 156", but this code is counting from 4 to 456 instead.

Thanks, Steven, I caught my own error earlier. The challenge window is more challenging for writing code as the error responses are sometimes not useful. I was assuming my code was broken, not that I had simply mis-typed 156 as 456. I have written extensively in procedural languages before and was thrown by this one goof I made in the code challenge.
