I got that wrong. The titlebar can show more than 80 characters without
truncation. Something like 160 characters is okay. (Though the display
of title in tabs will be truncated to 40 characters or so.. but it's not
as important as titlebar and as long as the first words starts with "CSS
Transforms test:" or "CSS Test (Transforms):")

What you have here is okay with me. But it could still be a serie of
tests with those different types of offsets, so with the same title,
without "(right/bottom offsets)". But anyway, again, what you wrote is
okay with me.
