  1. Well, re 1 the WHATWG is not an organization, let alone a standards organization. Indeed the W3C is not technically a standards organization. Rather it publishes recommendations.

    1. Alright fine! 😉 I wrote this quiz in about 15 minutes to test out the quiz plugin. Thanks for the feedback on the questions. I’ll remove that question, as it’s definitely wrong or at least confusing.

  2. Thanks, Jennifer.

    I suspect the precise answer to #4 is False.
    According to its definition of itself, (see above) WHATWG does not self-identify as the Web standards organization.

    While recognizing WHATWG’s contributions, http://www.w3.org/ describes itself, and is generally recognized as the Web standards agency.

    World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
    http://www.w3.org/ The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community where Member organizations, a full-time staff, and the public work together to develop Web standards. Led by Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee and CEO Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C’s mission is to lead the Web to its full potential. Contact W3C for more information.

    1. No worries about being obsessive. As I told John, I wrote the quiz in about 15 minutes. So it’s not surprising that some of the questions were bad. I’ve removed that question completely from the quiz.
