I was tasked with reviewing the Chapter_4 contributions and have some  
general comments. Now I believe the idea was that I would simply fix the  
tests and that the author of the test would verify the change and it would  
be all set. However, given the (unresolved) dispute over  
attribute-value-selector-004.xht I'm not sure I want to do work on  
changing tests as apparently there is disagreement about whether certain  
rules test the same thing.

In general I would like all tests that use the

    <p>Test passes if the "Filler Text" below is green.</p>
    <div>Filler Text</div>

to change into using the

    <p>This line should have a green color.</p>

pattern or equivalent. E.g.

    <div>This line should have a green color.</div>

would probably work better for some tests given the existing shared  
@import style sheets.

I think this makes it easier to see whether a test passed or failed. It is  
also the convention similar existing tests are following.

Is changing tests along these lines fine?
