Oh dear... only got 8/15! "Use it or lose it" in action! Haha, will try harder next time :o)

PS
I'm sure you'll know already but the × HTML entity should render the multiplication sign okay i.e. × vs x

I worked with media-neutral XML files for a bit and had to know lots of these! If the files were later used in e.g. a TTS engine it would correctly "read/speak" symbols etc.

These here should all work as they're from c. 2001, maybe the minus one is of use too?! Thanks! :o)
