François,

Where are your tests and the others from TTWF Paris?

Shouldn't such tests supposed to be somewhere in
http://test.csswg.org/source/contributors/
?

One other matter I want to point out. If you use a yahoo email account
or if you have "pub" in your email address, I unfortunately will be
filtering such emails. I am just fed up with all the spamming emails and
spammers who are using expendable and renewable free spam email accounts
from gmail, yahoo, hotmail, 163, etc.
