I think you are misunderstanding how reftests work. For example, if you have

test.html
[[[
<p>There should be one line of text below this one.
<p>This line should be visible
<p hidden>This line should not be visible
]]]

test.ref.html
[[[
<p>There should be one line of text below this one.
<p>This line should be visible
]]]

that would be sufficient for all platforms. Indeed, Mozilla runs a test 
along these lines on every checkin, on Windows, Mac and Linux, and on 
mobile phones.
