Hi all, 

I've been getting a lot of questions about the level of detail required to get top 
marks etc.

There's not a lot of room for a high level of detail, so top marks will actually 
depend more on what you leave out than the level of detail that you go into.
You can link to w3schools etc if you want all the attributes of a tag to be 
accessible, but what you should have is what you think the important aspects of 
HTML, CSS and JS are, and the examples you provide to support this

Think, if you had just 10 minutes to explain the most important parts of HTML,CSS 
and JS to someone, how would you do it? Dumping in a massive amount of detail 
probably isn't the answer.

For example the anchor tag is probably the most important invention in HTML as 
hyperlinks made the web what it was. paragraph and heading tags aren't interesting, 
as they are effectively an artifact of  word processing.

Also, do a bit of research about how the web evolved. applets and flash use to be 
critical to web apps and multimedia, but have now been surplanted by HTML5 and 
javascript. 

The CV page is just for the marker to know a bit about you, but is also an 
opportunity for you to polish up your CV. As a soon to be expert in WebDev, you'll 
want to be applying for all the cool jobs ;)

Good luck,

Tim.
