Everywhere in those testcases, the expressions
"This is the BODY.",
"an HTML box"
should be replaced otherwise removed.

"a green border" would be better replaced with "bright green border" or
even with an entirely different, other color like yellow.

Some wording are wrong:

"This is should be a box"

"This is should be a box that is green with a green border. This box
should be in another green box" :
this is confusing as far as nested green boxes are involved. A green box
in another green box: how would my neighbour (or anyone) be sure of that
just by looking at the page?

"showing through the tiled background of the box surrounding it."
I would suggest here to recuperate, to reuse the expression "bathroom
tiles" (or even better "white bathroom tiles") from other testcases
which seems natural, intuitive, meaningful and overall good for these
kinds of testcases.

The testcases
should have
<meta name="flags" content="image">

should have
<meta name="flags" content="image interact">
