X[HT]ML support on mobile browsers is a mess, and the testsuites
used by operators and handset manufacturers are really bad. I'm not
sure how many times we've had to tell customers that "no, we will
not pass that test; it is invalid".

A W3C test requiring X[HT]ML to be handled Correctly would be useful
for cleaning up some of this.
