Progressive Enhancement and Introduction to Google Maps - Quiz not working

Trying to complete the Quiz for Progressive Enhancement and Introduction to Google Maps and it seems that the fill in the blanks questions are not working. When the correct answer is submitted it returns as incorrect. The MCQ's are all ok but I cannot pass the quiz due to the problem with the 'fill in the blanks'

For example Q. Enhanced behavior is provided by (blank) JavaScript. A. Enhanced behavior is provided by unobtrusive, externally linked JavaScript.

This is marked as incorrect.

I am having a brain malfunction or is the quiz not working correctly ?

Any ideas !!

Hi Mark McGuinness

You'd be ok with just unobtrusive but I've added unobtrusive, externally linked too :)

Thanks Andrew

I have just tried this again and it still is being marked as incorrect.

I have the same problem with the question - Progressive enhancement is a web design strategy that focuses on the (blank) of content and functionality.

I give the answer - accesibility, but it still marks the answer as wrong.

Head Scratch ... not sure what is wrong as I'm giving the right answers. The MCQs are fine all marked as correct, it's just the questions that need the blanks filling in.

Any ideas

Thanks Mark

Hi Mark McGuinness

The word accessibility has two _s_es in it :) (I had to double check myself)

Hi Andrew

LOL ... Thanks for this. I agree that it has 2 s, but as you are American and I am English I referenced the spelling in your transcript at 00.29 which only has 1 s. (I wont tell anyone if you don't)

Anyway, got there in the end. All seems to be working fine now.

Enjoying the education, just have my customizing Google maps badge to do now !!

Just to mention that your videos are very good and I enjoy your enthusiasm for your subjects.

Thanks again :)

I'm glad I found this blog post because I was having similar issues.

However, I was never able to get this one correct. Is this not "HTML"?

_________ markup contains all the basic content.

The word you're looking for begins with the letter s.
