I agree to change the instructions with "similar to" rather than 
"identical to".

As I will use text-emphasis: <string> to draw a reference, so that 
text-emphasis: <string> will be tested while text-emphasis-style 
property is tested at the same time. To avoid duplicated tests, I will 
do not run text-emphasis: <string> by stand alone. It will make sense.

I will revise the instruction to focus on colors rather than shape.

Ok, I will use abspos technique.

At this moment, I would like to defer this as our focus is Japanese text

Hi fantasai
I put my replies in-line, and please wait for a moment until revised 
ones are submitted.
