Jesus! I just completed a high-speed, late-night HTML test hosted by Brainbench on my knowledge of forms, HTML, frames and CSS. On the site they stated that using reference books was sort of ok – if appropriate to the situation (or something equally obscure). Of course, I’m not in the least bit sure that it was appropriate in this case, because no one mentioned that I might need them to me. Or indeed told me much about the test at all. Which might explain why I decided to do 40 questions (with a time limit of 1 1/2 minutes per question) just after midnight on a Monday evening.

In the end, with the help of my two life-saving books, I completed the bloody thing (complete with questions about PICS, every property of the text-decoration element and what a server receives when you select two checkboxes with the same name but different values). But now – particularly since I kind of feel like looking things up is kind of immoral somehow – I’m kind of slightly pissed off by being described as if I were some kind of slow child…
