It's official...

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

Looks like they forgot to put the CSS in the "cut this and paste it" part, but basically, the top three bars should be red nearly 3/4 the way across, and all the same length. The rest drop off quite a bit after that. And yes, for those who wondered, I told them that "pin" and "pen" sound the same! :-)

The HTML code displayed on the quiz page is subtly different from the code they give you in the "copy and paste this" area. The div they use to display the red bar has a non-breaking space in the original working HTML, but a plain old space character in the broken copy and paste code.

Blogger won't let me paste in a literal HTML fragment here, but try this:

A search-and-replace of [slash,greater-than,space,less-than,slash-greater-than,slash,d,i,v] with [slash,greater-than,ampersand,n,b,s,p,semicolon,less-than,slash-greater-than,slash,d,i,v] did it for me.

The other funny part of course, is that both versions work in Internet Explorer. Neither Opera 9 nor Firefox 1.5 seemed to like the plain old space in between the divs.

Looks like my search and replace didn't come out looking quite right. Trying again with some spaces to help the paragraph formatter.

A search-and-replace of [slash, greater-than, space, less-than, slash, d, i, v] with [slash, greater-than, ampersand, n, b, s, p, semicolon, less-than, slash , d, i, v] did it for me.
