It makes sense on a very syntactical level, but it smacks of typo to me.

I don't know about you, but I was put off more by the misplaced apostrophes :P.

Cheers,

I still haven't got a definitive answer as to what people think about "promoted about pages". I assumed that it was a typing mistakes and should say "promoted above pages" as that was the only way I could make sense of the setence. I know of someone who asked Chris in the exam and he said it was indeed a mistake. However others said that "promoted about pages" made sense to them and answered the question accordingly.

But as I've said before it was probably a clerical error and not really CJs fault, more like some office bint (Tracy?) who typed it up. It SHOULD have been proof read though. Duplicate questions aren't exactly hard to catch.

It's all a good bit of drama and I look forward to an official statement from Mr Chris Johnson, my daddy.
