At last, I've found the time to come up with a set of test cases that
allows to detect how mobile user agents react with style sheets, and in
particular how they deal with the CSS Media Types [1] ('handheld' and
'screen' in particular).

The said 13 test cases are at:

They are integrated in the test harness on an experimental basis at:

Data are gathered at:

Comments, bug fixes and improvements are welcomed.

For what it's worth, these tests come as a response to the question I'm
frequently asked, i.e. whether mobile browsers reliably implement the
@media handheld; the mobile web best practices working group had
gathered some initial data on this:
http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/BPWG/techs/XhtmlBasic11Support , but I'm
hoping we can gather more solid data through the harness.

I guess I would like to get at least someone's explicit review of the
test cases before putting the test suite visible in the default view of
the harness page.
