    • Added another nextQuiz Button down at the bottom of the page for convenience.
    • Previously "clear answers" button only cleared the text box where you type your answers and not the correct answers displayed to the right of the text box after clicking get score. Resolved that issues so the correct answer is not displayed while you go through the quiz agan.
      • NOTE: after clicking clear answers the background colors indicating right and wrong answers persist so that when you retype answers you know if you previously got the answer right or wrong.
      • Prior to clicking Clear Answers, you can manually clear a textbox and retype an answer, after which clicking "get score" again will change the background color to green if a wrong answer is now entered correctly.
    • When "clear answers" is clicked the focus now goes to the first textbox.
