The wording of those testcases may be confusing and it opens the door to
interpretation.

"below" can be safely removed and then "to its right side" can be added.
(Also, "solid" may not be the best descriptor here. The blue line is
vertical, thick and short.)

E.g. for
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/html4/border-collapse-applies-to-001.htm
it could read like:
"Test passes if there is a short thick vertical blue line and, to its
right side, a dotted orange line."


Everywhere in the testcases of the test suite, the words
"visible"
"in this page"
"below"
are pleonastic (adj. for pleonasm) and can be removed as they are not
absolutely required in order to understand the testcases.

regards, Gérard
