Quick review of how to write and run tests:

Running tests requires Ant, which is often integrated into IDEs like
Eclipse, and is a standard Java tool available from
http://ant.apache.org/  Unzip somewhere and place the 'ant' command in
your path.

>From the project root directory, merely type "ant" to build. Type "ant
test" to run the tests.

Test cases are located under the "tests/data" directory in the
distribution. You will find a directory for each mobileOK test (e.g.
PageSizeTest) and a subdirectory for each test case (e.g. "1", "2",
"3", etc.). Creating a test is just a matter of creating another such

Within the subdirectory, you will need the following:
index.xhtml : the document to be tested
moki.xml : the expected moki document output from the checker
testresults.xml : the expected test results document

You may include as many other files as you like, such as stylesheets
and images. They will all be served to the checker as expected.

Note that for each file 'foo' you can include a companion file called
'foo.headers' which lists the HTTP headers which should be sent when
serving that file. This is needed for tests that need to check for
particular header values. This is just a text file wherein you write
one header name/value pair per line, like:
Content-Type: application/xhtml+xml
Cache-Control: public

That's it -- everything else should be automatic.

I will send out updates as I make the improvements we discussed this
week. Also, note that it seems most test cases are a little broken at
the moment. Sit tight.
