Adding public-css-testsuite.  Tab's full list of invalid tests was
here: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2010Oct/0304.html

I'm just commenting on the ones I disagree with (the first and the
first test in the third below) and have additional information on
(the second below, and the second and third tests in the third).

These tests use the CSSTest fonts in
http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/Fonts/ .  Some of those fonts have
numbers in place of "A"s, specifically for this set of tests.  So
with those fonts installed they should work.

It's a reftest, and it's supposed to show red when it passes, but
that could easily be changed.

Changed in r1508.

The first one says:
  Test passed if there is a green rectangle below and if there is no

The second and third are supposed to show the text "Isn't it
wonderful to see CSS quotes work!!!".  They should probably at least
have a reference.  (That said, I also think quotes-036 is invalid.)
