Why the <span> instead of textContent in the <li> ? What does Guil mean by TextContent and HTML behave differently?
Hi all, I bit confused. And having trouble understanding why we placed the <span> element inside of the <li> element to input and update text - could we have not used text content and continued to appendChild buttons etc.. to the <li>. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated!
