What would you consider basic knowledge of HTML?

I see "basic knowledge of HTML" as a requirement for a lot of job postings, but I have no idea what would be considered basic.

I'd say that the quiz referenced above is REALLY basic HTML.

To second what acrostica said, I would add things like links, images, tables, how to actually use frames and iframes, how to embed objects, forms and input tags, and a working knowledge of simple CSS (style sheets). Maybe some very simple javascript as well.

Suggest you grab a book on teaching yourself HTML and look through the table of contents to see what is in the early topics, they usually structure these things from simple to complex.

Can you hand code a webpage? Then you have a basic knowledge, IMO!

I'd consider it that you know how to do paragraphs, breaks, bold, italics, links, and images. Bonus points for lists and tables. I put "basic knowledge of HTML" in the internship requirements at my job, and that's what I expect an intern to already know.

You know what the little greater than/less than symbols are for.

If someone tells you to update a page where, say, the title is "Come to our party on the 25th!" and they want it to be the 27th, you don't need dreamweaver to do it. You have th power of notepad and ctrl+F.
