I think I should be formally enrolled in the group again. :)
The stuff I doing here is from memory. Though if you can think of
something else I need to do for Tuesday, please fix
http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/Tests/track/users/40348 :)

I see Dom has tried to tweak it so the font is download before the
test is run. Hence the font load on the first h1 and that ugly inline
style bit.

Couldn't onload event suffice? (Have not tried)
Does the ttf get gzipped? It is quite big at 13k. Though its 2.5K
gzipped, which is OK I guess.
I tried editing it with fontforge to remove the other glyphs except
<.>, though I have not figured out how to get Spline Font Database to
https://developer.mozilla.org/index.php?title=En/CSS/%40font-face goes
on about WOFF. Could the test WOFF too?

Added the silent (10ms) samples. I didn't use that sample from
freesound.org. I generated silence using Audacity.
silence.m4a: ISO Media, MPEG v4 system, iTunes AAC-LC
silence.mp3: Audio file with ID3 version 2.4.0, extended header,
contains: MPEG ADTS, layer III, v1, 128 kbps, 44.1 kHz, Monaural
silence.oga: Ogg data, Vorbis audio, mono, 44100 Hz, ~96000 bps,
created by: Xiph.Org libVorbis I
silence.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16
bit, mono 44100 Hz

hendry@i7 content$ du -b silence.*
805	silence.m4a
2967	silence.mp3
3979	silence.oga
9490	silence.wav

Amazingly large considering.

Wilhelm's canvas test is much simpler than v1. This could be a good thing.

Is validator.nu right about this?

I noticed on http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/2008/mobile-test/ that '(a name
is being sought for this test)' :)
