META, an EnigMarch Puzzle – EnigMarch Puzzle 31
This puzzle was designed for EnigMarch 2022 – check out #EnigMarch on Twitter.
NOTE: This puzzle is designed to be solved on a desktop computer.
- Meta can refer to a lot of things, not just puzzles
- For example, web pages have meta information, which is information normally hidden from view which describes how the page functions
- Most desktop web browsers let you view the code behind a page, and even edit it 'on the fly'
- Try right-clicking (ctrl+click on a Mac) and choosing 'Inspect'
- In the <style> statement for this page, there are a couple of statements commented out right at the top. Try removing comment delimiters ( /* and */ ) in the code inspector
- Removing the comment delimiters changes the text in the dot-matrix display to read NEXT. What could that mean?
- Did you know there used to be a <link> tag that you could use to designate the next page in a set? Wonder what happened to that...
- There is a NEXT tag in the metadat for this page. Where does it point to?
