Hello,

I am confused about how "Rendering References" are supposed to work.

E.g.:

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101027/html4/block-in-inline-insert-001a.htm

has 2 rendering references:

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101027/html4/block-in-inline-insert-001-nosplit-ref.htm

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101027/html4/block-in-inline-insert-001-ref.htm

and those 2 differ.

If you examine
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101027/html4/chapter-9.html#s9.2.1.1
you will see that several testcases have 2 rendering references as well.
Same thing with RC1 (20100917):
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20100917/html4/chapter-9.html#s9.2.1.1

How is it that all implementation reports can then report that they fail
or pass a test with 2 different rendering references?

Sometimes/often, the rendering references have validation markup errors
too.

regards, Gérard
