Thanks for the test cases!

The test case format page is an initial draft created after F2F9, and we 
to update it,  and reconcile it with the templates.

There are currently fields to record basic associated information, which 
be reformatted (and possibly added to) later.  Let us know if there isn't 
a field for
something you want to record.

The proposed test cases on 
should be in valid presentation syntax, those that aren't need to be 

Your test case that you asked about
looks good to me, but I'm not sure if conclusion needs to be a document.

Is it ok if we move around some of your test case pages, so that they are 
not all
under "T" ?

(for now) The first letter of your test case page
(as in http://www.w3.org/2005/rules/wiki/<your test case page> )
determines which heading it shows up under on

The page lacks descriptions of the properties Text and Format and
guidelines about how to format the title.
Then, it is not very clear to me what the difference is between the
properties Purpose and Description.

All the examples like the required properties title and purpose.  In
addition, it is unclear to me which syntax they use. it is certainly not
valid presentation syntax.

I tried to write a test case (a negative entailment test), but I was not
sure whether it is in the correct format.  Please check:
