Hi,

A new set of comments on the XHTML Forms test cases
http://www.w3.org/2007/10/mwts-nist/

* "nothing should happens" on the first tests is a bit misleading - the
form is actually submitted, and to the user, this means that the page
will be reloaded - this probably should be clarified
* for GET-based tests, this is all the more true that the URI of the
page will change to include the query string
(firstname=<...>&submit=submit)
* I think that beyond the first few tests, we shouldn't include a submit
button when we don't expect anything to happen when it gets pressed (and
thus, remove the mention of which method attribute is set)
* the file "mobileWeb.html" was not included in the zip file, but is
needed for some of the tests
* the tests with tabindex should describe the intended behavior (in
other words, that when navigating through the controls, the first button
to get the focus should be X, the second Y, the third Z, etc) rather
than to say what markup was used

Thanks,

Dom
