That "study" used multiple choice questions. It's less a measure of how many people actually know the terms than a way for the company to get some amusing answers to send out in a press release and promote itself.
Such a large percentage of people couldn't be wrong in such a specific way otherwise - 27% of people thinking a gigabyte is an insect commonly found in South America my arse.

Pretty sure a high number of Britains wouldn't know what HTML is either.

1 in 10 really isn't that bad anyway. It's not like HTML is all that useful to most people.

A more measured headline would be "1 in 10 people don't know what HTML is", which really isn't interesting at all.
