Use double quotes when outputting escaped characters, think of them as special. May I ask why you call it the control character, when in fact it's the "new line" character? Try using element.innerHTML and use break <br> the new line character just looks wrong here. Good luck.

The same result with double quotes. And working with console.log('Hello \n world'); <br> work well with document.write(). Yes you right new line character my mistake in translation.
