I think I've fixed the problems. Please take a look and make sure
the changes are correct:


I've also improved the usability of all the tests in the series by turning
each pair into a block / inline-block. And improved the accuracy by applying
text-transform only to the test character, not to the control character.
These changes are revisions
   1681 (split source into diffable lines, add inline-block display)
   1682 (use <div> instead of <span> per pair)
   1683 (adopt proper control styling)
   1685 (fix error in 1683)
   1686 (add blue to better differentiate test from instructions)
