The sixth and seventh lines of this test:
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/html4/c525-font-wt-000.htm
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/xhtml1/c525-font-wt-000.xht
have incorrect pass conditions, although depending on available
fonts only one of them will show up as a problem at a time.

If the default font has no weights lighter than 400, the "This
sentence should be very light." (7) shows up the same weight as
normal (which is allowed).

If, instead, the default font does have weights lighter than 400,
then the previous line (6), "This sentence should be normal."
actually shows up lighter than normal, because the test is testing:
  <p> <b>This sentence should be normal.</b> </p>
  b { font-weight: lighter }

I think the pass conditions for both tests should say that the test
should either be normal or lighter than normal.
