Arron,

Agreed. The test was valid and correct.

I only wanted to underline the fact that Firefox 4.0beta6's
implementation report and Safari 5.0.2's implementation report both

"false positives", I misworded this.

font size has been changed to 1.25em and pass conditions are now saying
"2 small filled black squares".
