Peter,

In this 3.1.1 subsection

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css-writing-modes-3_dev/nightly-unstable/html/chapter-3.htm#s3.1.1

there are 11 tests which have nothing to do with SVG.

3.1.1 SVG1.1 writing-mode Values
http://www.w3.org/TR/css-writing-modes-3/#svg-writing-mode

If I consider this test,

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css-writing-modes-3_dev/nightly-unstable/html/writing-mode-vertical-rl-001.htm

it is linked to #propdef-writing-mode instead #writing-mode

More explicitly:

<link rel="help" title="CSS3 Writing modes: 3.1. Block Flow Direction: 
the 'writing-mode' property" 
href="http://www.w3.org/TR/css-writing-modes-3/#propdef-writing-mode">

should be instead

<link rel="help" title="CSS3 Writing modes: 3.1. Block Flow Direction: 
the 'writing-mode' property" 
href="http://www.w3.org/TR/css-writing-modes-3/#writing-mode">

Now the building of the test suite puts such test (and the other 10 
tests) in section 3.1.1 while they should be, in all fairness, in 
section 3.1. This causes me some annoyance as I do not know how many 
tests are really about section 3.1 and now many tests are really about 
section 3.1.1 ... and the same phenomenon may be happening in other 
sections of Writing modes test suite and in other test suites!

I'd be willing to edit those 11 tests and remove "propdef-" ... unless 
you tell me that you can do something or should modify how the test 
suites are built...
