Tests for rendering are allowed. Assuming the use of javascript for the 
tests is impossible or very undesirable, reftests are strongly preferred 
(rendering tests MUST be reftests where possible, if you will). I don't 
recall if this was a problem with your submission, but tests, especially 
those that cannot be tested automatically, must have a clear pass 
condition so that they can be run by someone with no knowledge of the 
technology under test in a few seconds per test.
