Hello all,

1- may and HTMLonly flags
-------------------------

The last time I checked the CSS 2.1 test suite, the flags "may" and
"HTMLonly" were not displayed (not viewable, not visible) in the flags
column in the index pages.

2- max-width-109.htm test
-------------------------

James and Fantasai,
This testcase
http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/CSS2.1/20100127/html4/max-width-109.htm
has a duplicated
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">
and the image link is not relative to the support folder.

Actual:
src="http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/CSS2.1/current/xhtml1/support/swatch-blue.png"
Expected: src="support/swatch-blue.png"

3- SGML comments
----------------

I would like to know
- if SGML comments are possible and acceptable in a testcase
- otherwise, if SGML comments are stripped, then is it ok to explain a
bit what is happening in the testcase in the test assertion?

I ask this because some particular testcases covering float, clear,
clearance and margin collapsing are more difficult to do, more complex
to do+understand and involve more intricated explanations from the CSS
2.1 spec. (section 8.3.1 and 9.5.2 in particular)
I ask this because Bruno Fassino submitted excellent testcases and his
annotations in the form of SGML comments would help..

regards, Gérard
+CC Bruno Fassino
