I found this fun test online, where you’re challenged to come up with as many HTML elements as you can remember:
It’s quite fun. I managed to dredge 73 elements out of my memory — really stretching to the limits of what I would ever consider using — but that left 41 elements still up for grabs.
Afterwards, looking at a full list of HTML elements, I see that most I didn’t get are things I’ve never used before and that (imho) seem a bit obscure.
Anyhow, have a go and see if you can beat my score!
After tearing my hair out for 20 mins or so I managed a measly 45.
b i ol ul ruby html head meta link script style body h1 h2 h3 h4 h5 h6 p main aside header footer form input button a details summary li img picture nav div span table thead th tr td hr tfoot u strong em
Afterwards, looking at a full list of HTML elements, I said “Doh!” a lot of times. I missed so many obvious ones.
For anyone else trying this, here is a full list of elements:
I hit 61 before I hit a wall. Peeked at the list and there were a couple head smacks, but a bunch I’ve just never found a use for and just completely forgot about them.
Nice find though…
Managed 85 before I gave up
And here I thought if anyone would get them all…
Just looked at the complete list and there were about another 25 that I knew and should have remembered.
I only managed 48 before stopping and trying, and 56 after trying. A few d’ohs when going through the element list, but mainly “I’ve never used that in my life”…
I got up to 62 before I gave up. I started going through my works CMS modules and the HTML for each, because we have a little something unique going on for a lot of our modules and it helped me grab some extras.
The rest of the list were pretty obscure. Definitely a few DOH’s in there.
If it helps (and I should have clarified) it was a mental exercise
. I did not open them up in reality. I went like:
Ok, Athletics is first…that has xyz…next up is Boards…
