This serious rating of HTML coders complements my earlier joke post regarding the evolution of programmers by explaining 7 levels of HTML understanding from HTML Level 0 to HTML Level 6. I’d put myself at HTML Level 4 moving into 5.
It isnâ€™t necessary for everybody to reach HTML Level 6. I consider myself a Level 5 person, and Iâ€™m quite happy reading the specs instead of writing them so I donâ€™t really feel like I need to reach Level 6. People whose task is to keep a websiteâ€™s content up-to-date can even get by at Level 1, provided that their CMS is good enough. It all depends on your needs.
Levels of HTML Knowledge was inspired by Levels of CSS knowledge. I am Level 5.
