The problem of the CSS test suites lies in their atomicity.
Surfing the tests with IE6 is a proof-of-concept of this problem.
I propose to implement a section devoted to "real world  
coverage" (Hixie) tests.
Of course we need some rules to build up the templates.

Things to test:

1) multi-columns layouts
2) floats and positioning (implied by 1)
3) box model (implied by 1)
4) colors and backgrounds (implied by 1)
5) generated content
6) lists
7) tables
8) 'display' values

Again, we need strict rules to build these tests. Any idea?
