But the example is XML <HBOX> is not a standard tag in any XHTML or HTML. Yes this can be tested using div+class but then the example is different. Every example needs a test for it because this is the specific specified case that the spec says should work. If that isn't a valid example then it should be removed from the spec.

I was thinking about the conversion from XHTML to XML. This should have no problem when the build tries to convert the XHTML to other formats like XML format. This is a non issue from my point of view now. The 'nonHTML' flag works for all of our scenarios.

We have flags for all other file types (images, ahem, font) it seemed like it would make sense to also do the same for the cases that require additional support files like additional XHTML files in the case of frames. These flags are calling out prerequisites and since it is required that you have the support image file load in cases that use images I now have a case where my file is an XHTML file and it is required to load for the case to be correct.
