The recorded results are right - it looks like the HTML generator does not
respect the "index=" in the results files.  The HTML page is generated from 
the underlying test suite: http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/tests/data/

It would be clearer to use SRX files for ordered results - the HTML generator
doesn't seem to understand them, looking at their use elsewhere.

Ditto.

It's legal.  Any keyword can be used as a prefix.  This happens in the
tokenizing part of the grammar because "FILTER:" is a longer match than "FILTER"

Old syntax.

The test suite is both a current and historical.  It needs to be split into 
those things that are current and approved and the rest.  These tests record 
and old syntax and old feature.  Neither in current SPARQL.

Open world issue.  != means not known to be different so unless the processor
knows about the types, they are not known to be different values so != does
not return true.
