const HTMLString = <br> <label>Entry ${entryNumber} Name</label>;


Hi @ranga.munyoro

You need to wrap the html elements in template literals.
HTMLString cannot use the br element.

Happy coding

I did as below:

const HTMLString = <label>Entry ${entryNumber} Name</label>;

But I am still getting the below message:

Sorry, your code does not pass. You’re getting there.

Your HTMLString variable should start with a new line.

After the first template literal press the enter key to move the rest of the code on to a new line.

Wow. That’s some magic. It worked! How does that work though because I had no idea that pressing an enter would create a new line line. I was under the impression that
creates a new line. I am just confused cause I thought I had things figured out.
