Why would we write the HTML content with Javascript??

I guess I'm wondering why would we use html in Javascript,and if theres a way to create the content in HTML and afterwards link it the Javascript functions and methods?

Hi Sandra, I was thinking the same as I went through the JS courses. I would say the main benefit of writing HTML using JS is when you require many blocks of code that require the same HTML markup. You can create 100 employee profiles that are presented exactly the same way using one piece of JS code (loops) whereas that would entail a lot of HTML code and a whole lot more maintenance.

I have not done full stack but I think this becomes even more useful as users interact more and new profiles etc are created.

Hope this helps.
