I wish we would always indicate filename of testcase in subject line of
emails when the email is only about 1 single testcase. This helps
finding, searching and helps the purpose of archiving.

Where exactly do you see this, read this in the spec? I am not
questioning what happens with a table-caption without a table box. I am
just asking where exactly, precisely I would get to read about this
shrinking to min-content width for table-caption. I'd really like to
know/read this.

I adopted your suggesting and added \A0 in unicode utf-8 into those
2 testcases and added a /* explanation comment */ to that effect.

Testcases upgraded and svn-checked revision version 1499:






The same suggestion (adding a non-breaking space between r and t) should
apply to Microsoft's




because there is no blank white space between the r and t. This was
already reported by Řyvind Stenhaug in


I have updated and upgraded the code of all 36 testcases
[after|before]-content-display-0xx so that those 36 testcases are easier
and faster to go through.
