The fixed() method creates a <tt> HTML element that causes a string to be displayed in fixed-pitch font.




The fixed() method embeds a string in a <tt> tag: "<tt>str</tt>".

The following example uses the fixed method to change the formatting of a string:

var worldString = 'Hello, world';


This example produces the same output as the following HTML:
