comment Function guaranteed to never return the same value twice
This is a good answer, because interviewer never ask questions to get a straight answer. They want you to give an answer where you can justify your decisions. If you understand the domain, nearly any answer will be suitable if you can justify it.

comment Why are the <b> and <i> tags deprecated?
@supercat class='bold'? Master Suku of The Codeless Code would have words with you about the use of such poor classnames. Consider this your last boldRedText.

comment Client-side coding: How to prevent malicious use?
@Ajedi32 Client-side apps are insecure. It is impossible to design a secure app if any logic done client-side isn't checked server-side. At that point the client-side logic becomes a UI nicety or a way to offload basic checks, but everything, must always be checked on server!!.

comment Too many technologies … too little time to learn them all
"I'd like to learn all science", "I'd like to read all books". Welcome to life, you are here for a very finite amount of time. Learn to filter the wheat from the chaff and do the best you can.

Without the first line this would be a good answer. CSV is a good alternative to XML for tabular information (a distributable SQLite file is probably better than both). But as you explain for tabular data is it the superior file choice.
