HTML Memory Test
This tweet passed by in my Twitter feed one day:
There are, like, 110 unique tags in HTML5. Do people seriously memorize them all? Because I haven’t. I wrote about some tactics to improve semantics, whether you’ve memorized all the tags or not - featuring my recent discovery: the
<meter>element! – Leslie Cohn-Wein (@lesliecdubs)
I thought to myself, ‘That’s a lot to remember. I wonder if there’s a game that tests you?’
A web search and lack of a results later… HTML Elements Memory Test was created!
HTML elements to test you
The design is brutally styled using only named colours, to suit the bare HTML element, retro theme. It has a dark theme too, depending on your preference and how long it takes you to recall the elements!
To create the initial elements array, before I found a list of HTML elements, I tried to remember as many as I could. I made it to 74. If I took more time, perhaps 80–90. The more exotic table element tags, typography and embed tags, were the elements I had trouble recalling. I would be amazed if anyone could remember 100%.
It’s the time-sink 2020 needs.
