           Summary: Test framework runs tests inside <object>, leading to
                    unexpected results
           Product: Testing
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Test Framework
        AssignedTo: mike@w3.org
        ReportedBy: bzbarsky@mit.edu
         QAContact: dave.null@w3.org
                CC: public-test-infra@w3.org

Due to the way <object> loads work, the browsing context is not created until
the server response has been received.  This can lead to unexpected behavior
for some things that tests may want to test.

It would be better to run the tests in an iframe instead.
