Sorry for that sending to Dom, replying to all at this time:


Oh, that eases testing on any browser, I'd say. Question is, though, how  
testing this in a testing framework/harness can be automated, as testing  
each test case becomes a little tedious after a while. The result is  
either PASS or FAIL, so it can be automated in any case. However,  
personally I'm more into rendering, and hence I lack the necessary  
knowledge on how to do it.
