Why do you call it "html .map()"?

I don't understand the "html" part.

But while very useful, the array method map doesn't always replace the need for a loop. It depends on what kind of process the loop is performing.

For example, a loop which determines the index of the array item that has the largest value would not be easily replaced using map.

i also get your point

Off-topic, but I'm pretty sure Steven Parker is a genius. :)
