This forum and other tech forums are the way to go on a "need to know" basis, as they're people with real-world problems that usually end up with a solution on the same page.

Yes thankfully the web is there and I'm sure every level of client/server side coder searches now and again even just for reassurance.

So long as you remember the things you searched for, you are improving your skills, in a very practical way. :)

|I was in an interview recently for a migration role and I said that if I ever do get stuck on code I search it to find out the answer and the interviewer asked if I used w3schools, because their code is terrible. |
People who take a course at w3schools and then proclaim they now know HTML/CSS are usually fooling themselves. Most people dash through it in a day, only using the built-in Try-It-Yourself! While you can learn from w3, and it's a decent place to go for refreshers, it's never something you'd want to put on a resume or mention in an interview, as it makes you come off as a novice.
I am definitely not saying you aren't proficient in HTML/CSS, but I can see how an interviewer might think that, and might not want to gamble on you with other applications on their desk.

Thanks for your replies.
Thanks, yes generally I do a search and if w3schools comes up with the answer I may use them or someone else. It is not the only reference I use, but it was the first time I had heard they weren't reliable and wanted to hear if it was a personal opinion or a general one.
I learnt from them about 8 years ago and have referred people to them since then to start out, but now that I have found some others sites, I will definitely refer to them.
Am just reading through [w3fools.com...]
