Yes, this was written before I was aware we were going to use PHP. A 
working example is up at 
Rather than rewriting the test to use PHP, though, I'd prefer using a

> When a plain text document is to be loaded in a browsing context, the user agent should queue a task to create a Document object, mark it as being an HTML document, set its media type to "text/plain", create an HTML parser, associate it with the document, act as if the tokenizer had emitted a start tag token with the tag name "pre" followed by a single U+000A LINE FEED (LF) character, and switch the HTML parser's tokenizer to the PLAINTEXT state. Each task that the networking task source places on the task queue while the fetching algorithm runs must then fill the parser's input stream with the fetched bytes and cause the HTML parser to perform the appropriate processing of the input stream.

This is the part of the spec it is testing.

(While looking back at the test, I've also added a couple more assertions.)
