I haven't checked everything, but I noticed one small problem in the 
attribute selector tests: the "lang" attribute doesn't exist in 
XHTML 1.1. The tests either need to use XHTML 1.0 or need to 
rename "lang" to "xml:lang".

(One may question why XHTML 1.1 isn't more backwards compatible, but 
that's a different discussion.)

A problem of a different sort is that the test files use <!
[CDATA[...]]>. That is valid XHTML, but some browsers have trouble with 
it. Because of that, and because it is a test for CSS support, not 
XHTML support, I suggest removing the <![CDATA[...]]>. There is nothing 
in the style sheets that needs escaping anyway.
