I wish everyone would always provide the full url of testcases. This
saves time and make checking testcases easier, quicker. No pasting of
base url needed, no opening of a new tab required. Having the base url
also makes certain which version of testsuite.

> Ambiguous: the text goes green when you hover to the right of the text


The pass condition clearly implies hovering over the text. Hovering over
to the right of the middle sentence is an incidental consequence of the
testcase and is not necessarly part of the testcase.

I do not believe that the vertical position of the bullet with regards
to to the borders should be explicitly defined for those testcases.

but in many cases the bullet is not aligned with the line.

Then the vertical alignment of the bullet with regards to line is not
part of the testcase and should not be considered part of the pass

The bullet will occupy an upper position with regards to the
border-bottom testcases while it will occupy a lower position with
regards to border-top testcases. But again, such vertical position is
not part of the test.

The testcase should have been made clear about this because the width of
the 2 underlining lines for each group of 3 "Filler text" has to be
compared and that is precisely part of the test.

Proposed replacement:

<span id="span1">Filler Text Filler Text Filler Text&nbsp;</span><span
id="span2">Filler Text Filler Text Filler Text</span>

so that there seems to be only 1 line and that such line should
consistently have the same thickness.

td { text-align: center; padding-top: 0px;}

td { text-align: center; padding-bottom: 0px;}

I agree it's confusing and not best worded.

Proposed adjustment:

<p>Test passes if the blue square is in the upper-right corner of the
