The variable name "html" reflects the contents of the variable, since it is used to store HTML code. The name isn't important, you could get the same result naming it "bob".

And it's not "<driv>" but "<div>", which is an HTML tag that represents a division element. You might consider taking some HTML courses to supplement your JavaScript, such as HTML Basics.
