Description

5 years ago
In an internal web app, we show charts which we fill up from JSON data. In this case, we sometimes embed the JSON contents in JS code in a <script> tag. For one such case, the JSON string is 4673746 bytes long, and it's preceded by something like '"\t\tvar data = ";'. If I View Source on this page, the line shows up as empty, (though it does show up and get line numbered!). If I enable word-wrapping, contents of the line are shown.

This can be very confusing.
