while ( counter>10) {
    document.write("<p>10" + counter + "</p>");
    counter += 1;

Your current code sets counter equal to 10 and your while loop only runs if your counter is greater than 10. Since 10 is not greater than 10 it never runs. To fix this:

  1. Leave counter = 1;
  2. Make loop run while counter is less than 10
var counter = 1;
while ( counter < 11 ) {
    document.write("<p>Now in loop #" + counter + "</p>");
    counter += 1;

Thanks Wade
