How does jsFiddle work? How does it compile the snippets of code that are entered in the HTML, CSS and JavaScript panels?

I have tried searching but I haven't found any answers.

The jsFiddle server takes the pieces you specify and constructs an actual HTML page that is made up of the CSS, HTML and Javascript and included script files that you've specified. It creates a real HTML page server side and then specifies that source URL in an iframe so the browser will take it all in and parse it as a real web page.
