Next deck, somewhat less important, but still important:

Can you code HTML from scratch?
If they say they use Frontpage 98 or any other publisher type of software "exclusively" then beware. The software is convenient for time laboring details, but knowing HTML code is imperative. However, you also need to know:
Which program do you like best?
This is important in case you wish to pick up the same program, or if you have personnel you want to train. It's also important in the event you have to switch. Sites coded in GoLive will look like geek speak to Dreamweaver users and visa versa.
How do you test your web pages?
The answer should be Mac and PC, in level 2, 3, and 4 browsers. If they don't mention AOL, then you'll potentially be in trouble. Unless you want to throw away those 25,000,000 readers.
What's your favorite new technology?
Determine if the webmaster is familiar with the cutting edge technologies. Not that you'll need them, but more as an indication that the individual is 'growing' in the field. Be aware that some new technologies don't work for all OS and all browsers. Can they code a redirection script for different versions of the same page?
