Basic JavaScript - Escape Sequences in Strings

Tell us what’s happening:
From everything I can tell, I have input the code correctly. However, it gives me this error:
// running tests myStr should contain the strings FirstLine, SecondLine and ThirdLine (remember case sensitivity) There should be a newline character between SecondLine and ThirdLine myStr should only contain characters shown in the instructions // tests completed
Also, when I use console.log(myStr); , it adds an extra tab character in front of the second line, even though there is clearly only one tab escape character. Please advise.

Your code so far

const myStr = "FirstLine\n\t\\SecondLine\nThirdline"; // Change this line

below your code add this

this will log the string so you can see if it displays the way it should or not

I’d look at the capitalization on “ThirdLine”.

Wow… epic beginner fail… I got so obsessed with console.log(myStr) making it look like there was an extra tab that I completely missed that. Thanks.

Happens to all of us. A programmer’s best tool is a second pair of eyes.
