HI Team.

Just wondering about const source = document.getElementbyId(‘ice-cream’).innerHTML

Why is ice-cream the ID we get? Is it because the script ID was equal to ice-cream? I just want to make sure I understand it correctly. It wasn’t explained why was Ice-cream, just the we put ice-cream as the ID in the source constant.


This line links to the code line in the HTML document - . We could use any name for the ID. They used ice-cream as it seemed relevant to the content
