Microsoft's tests for HTML attributes having zero specificity
and being at the start of the author's cascade are incorrect.
The rules used to override the HTML preshints all have greater
than zero specificity, so the UA could set the preshint styles
as
   - specificity of one, at the start of the author cascade
   - specificity of zero, at the end of the author cascade
and still pass the test. The tests must use the universal
selector in order to test whether the spec is correctly
followed.
