I don’t believe the instructions are correct for the escape sequences portion. The instructions say to replicate these three lines:

FirstLine
\SecondLine
ThirdLine

I assumed this should be programmed as such:

var myStr = ‘FirstLine\n\SecondLine\\nThirdLine’;

However, the “correct” code is:

var myStr = ‘FirstLine\n\SecondLine\\rThirdLine’;

The instructions should specify the use of a carriage-return between the second and third line, since there’s no way to decipher that from the instructions without looking at the error portion after first-submit.

Here is the text with the escape sequences written out.

“FirstLine newline backslash SecondLine backslash carriage-return ThirdLine”
