I'd like to think I'm on the cusp between levels 5 and 6. How proficient are you?

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

What level have you reached in the Real (CSS) Tournament?

I'd say 5 - a long way from 6.

Probably a high 4 or low 5.... oh, how I would love to be a 6. *drool*

Same here. Probably a 5.01 for me. Laughing out loud

The scale doesn't seem to have a very fine granularity. I'd guess most of the regulars here are 5+. Most of the visitors with real endeavour are already 5s or aspiring to be 5 quite soon.

I'd agree about the lack of gradation in the numbers. I'd say I was a 5. I'd work hard to use CSS correctly, validating, thinking about accessibility etc BUT I don't always understand what I'm using - just that it works.

I think there's a big difference between someone like me who usually gets it working right but doesn't understand all the technicalities and many of the Gurus on here who DO understand the whys and wherefores and inner workings of CSS but haven't yet graced the bookshelves!

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

What a stupid scale. All of the regulars on this forum are going to be between 5 and 6 so what's the point in going any further :? (but I do like TPH's answer Wink )

Life's a b*tch and then you die!

Mind you, how would you split up the difference between 5 and 6 into smaller increments? In fact, between each of them?

Sadly, I'm a 3 moving on to 4. Div layouts haven't been my forté.

Tables work for me. Div's and their whole absolute vs. relative positioning is still floating "out there". I'll learn it one day. The day the others in the team actually care for non-table based layout.
