Quoting Strings with Single Quotes with removing backlsashes

Hi everyone!
i have changed the outer quotes here to singl;e quotes and removed the backlash inside the code, however it keep says : Remove all the backslashes ( \ )

any idea what do i have to do ?

i am new here and this is my first post, please accept my apologies if i am doing something stupid :o

Thanks

Your code so far


var myStr = '<a> href="http://www.example.com" target= "_blank" >Link<a>';

you have done other changes, like added an extra >
you have also removed a forward slash (it should be </a> at the end of the string)

Hi ieahleen, Thank you for helping me out here. now the code looks like this:
var myStr = β€˜< a > href=β€œhttp://www.example.com” target= β€œ_blank” >Link< / a>’;

and still says that i have to remove backslashes, do you see something else wrong ?

what’s the original string?
you still have the extra > at the beginning - did you do the html part of the certificate? the > goes after all the attributes

put the old and new strings nest each other and see what are the differences. there is something you probably deleted, or added accidentally
