Hmmmm. I can’t seem to figure out why the following code snippet won’t work to answer the second portion of the problem:

{{#each newArray}}


Not sure what I am doing wrong on #2.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Each Block[s]</title>
    <link href="public/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">
    <script src="handlebars.min.js"></script>
    <!-- Add an {{each}} helper block in the <script> element below-->
    <script id="eachHelper" type="text/x-handlebars-template">
    	{{#each newArray}}
      	<div class="block">{{this}}
    <h1>Each Block[s]</h1>
    <div id="display">
    <script src="public/main.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Never mind, forgot something.


I believe that for the content in {{this}} to be rendered as HTML, you need to incase it in an HTML element. In this lesson for instance:

Inside the {{each}} block, add a <div> element with a class attribute of "block" . The content of the <div> will be {{this}}

So like this:

 <script id="eachHelper" type="text/x-handlebars-template">
       {{#each newArray}}
        <div class='block'>{{this}}</div>
