Hello all,

This test

http://test.csswg.org/source/contributors/microsoft/submitted/Chapter_17/border-conflict-width-035.xht

has 2 problems and should be reviewed.

1- The entire title states
"
CSS Test: Border Conflict Resolution (by border width): 'groove' vs.
'hidden' - border style with largest width should be the dominant border
"

but this is not what section 17.6.2.1 Border conflict resolution
states:

"
(...) any occurrence of the style 'hidden' unconditionally turns the
border off. (...)
The following rules determine which border style "wins" in case of a
conflict:

   1. Borders with the 'border-style' of 'hidden' take precedence over
all other conflicting borders. Any border with this value suppresses
all borders at this location.
"
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#border-conflict-resolution

Also, the meta assert is also irrelevant when it says "The widest border
is dominant when two cell borders collapse."

regards, Gérard
