I wouldn't read too much into it, most of the time the people
conducting the interview know that "testing is good" and have heard of
things called "unit tests", but that's about it.  It's a stock
question, which I now give the stock answer of "yes I love writing
tests" rather than explain how its a bit different with xslt and there
is no consensus or established way.  The same goes for javadoc style
