The following tests:

are invalid because they make assumptions about the user-agent style
sheet that:
 * are not required by CSS
 * contradict the requirements of WhatWG HTML5, which says, in
   http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/rendering.html#alignment
   # User agents are expected to have a rule in their user agent
   # stylesheet that matches th elements that have a parent node
   # whose computed value for the 'text-align' property is its
   # initial value, whose declaration block consists of just a
   # single declaration that sets the 'text-align' property to the
   # value 'center'.

These tests should probably be removed.
