A few months ago I had a job interview for a web development 
position.  Most of the questions were business and teamwork 
oriented.  There were a few "technical" questions tossed into the mix as 
well.  My personal favorite:

"What HTML tags would you use to create a table on a web page?"

To which I had to respond: "Um...the Table tag?"  I asked them to clarify a 
bit further, and it came out that they wanted to see if I could write HTML 
by hand as opposed to using a WYSIWYG editor.  Made me laugh, though.
