The problematic titles are things like

  <title>CSS Test (Transforms): Containing Block for Fixed Positioning
(right/bottom offsets)</title>

There are tests that 'transform' creates a containing block for
absolute positioning, and for fixed positioning.  In both cases, there
are multiple versions that use different types of offsets.  The more
tests you have, the longer the names have to get to be descriptive.
