(Hixie doesn't really maintain any of the tests he wrote  they fall 
into a general bin of unmaintained by anyone specific tests, and 
normally end up being done by fantasai (or occasionally myself).)

Hmm, I'll try and take a look at that on Thursday (I don't really want 
to be editing tests without knowing what I'm doing, for obvious 
reasons). Equally, I'll fix body v. BODY, and the leading new line in 
the pre element then.

However, in general, it seems a good idea to change the test to a 
reftest, yet as it is now the reference differs from the test by way of 
AA artifacts. Any suggestion on how to create a reference that is identical?
