Hello all,

Testcases involved are:

http://test.csswg.org/source/contributors/microsoft/submitted/Chapter_6/html-attribute-025.htm

and

http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/CSS2.1/20100316/html4/html-attribute-025.htm

Browsers do not consistently have the same default padding value for
HTML 4 textearea elements. The test assumes that there is a default 1px
padding for HTML 4 textearea elements. The tester (or a machine) may
feel/see that Firefox 3.6.3 and Konqueror 4.4.3 fail such testcase when
in fact the testcase must/should require a padding: 0px declaration on
textarea.

Again, here too, I would definitely remove the recourse of universal
selector * and redo the stylesheet of the testcase, and keep it very
minimal.

----------

In testcase
http://test.csswg.org/source/contributors/microsoft/submitted/Chapter_6/html-attribute-010.htm
cols attribute is required for HTML textarea elements: cols attribute is
not a deprecated attribute. So, the doctype declaration should not be
transitional but a strict one instead.

regards, Gérard
