James, thank you for the reply.

> I believe this is because Blink/WebKit incorrectly prevent accessing resources loaded into data: urls cross-origin. Unfortunately I think working around this bug will require rewriting the tests to load the test data into an isolated browsing context in which to perform the parsing using some other mechanism.

Fails on IE11 too:
Access is denied. (stack: Error: Access is denied. at Anonymous function (http://w3c-test.org/html/syntax/parsing/test.js:162:16) at step (http://w3c-test.org/resources/testharness.js:1159:13) at onload (http://w3c-test.org/html/syntax/parsing/test.js:160:7))

So it looks like the only platform the tests support is Firefox. It doesn’t look like a great test for interoperability…

Is it hard to rewrite the test as you suggested?
