Boris,

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/first-letter-quote-003.htm

There is a peculiar situation with this test.

first-letter-quote-003's reftest is

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/reference/first-letter-quote-001-ref.htm

So far, everything is correct (albeit title element is missing). But
then first-letter-quote-001-ref itself is associated with/must match a
test:

<link rel="match" href="../first-letter-quote-002.htm">

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/first-letter-quote-002.htm

So, a normal tester testing first-letter-quote-003 with the harness

http://test.csswg.org/harness/test/CSS21_DEV/first-letter-quote-003/

will be confronted with 2 "reftests" which must be matching
first-letter-quote-003. There should be only 1 match reftest. On top of
that, both match "reftest" are different. So, as designed, it's
impossible to pass.



http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/testcase/first-letter-quote-002/name/first-letter-quote-002/

shows an auto-referencing loop:

References: 	== first-letter-quote-001-ref
Referenced by: 	first-letter-quote-001-ref (==)

Finally, I think font-size should be dramatically increased for the test
and its associated reftest to ease the task of testers.
