I think once it's cleaned up a bit (e.g. removing the Mozilla bug
references and maybe making the output a little more readable),
we can copy it over into the media queries test suite and just link
it as a separate, special test from the index page.

I've checked it into SVN at
   http://test.csswg.org/svn/contributors/mozilla/incoming/mediaqueries/
for now. You should have write access to the repository; ping me if
you've forgotten your password.
