I just looked at two random tests (that fail here for FF2), and I agree 
that those would be much more useful if they came with some 
documentation about what is expected.

Re <http://tc.labs.opera.com/apis/XMLHttpRequest/responseXML/009.htm>:

This seems to assume that 
<http://tc.labs.opera.com/apis/XMLHttpRequest/responseXML/support/008.xml> 
is not XML, but it is (served as application/xml).

Re <http://tc.labs.opera.com/apis/XMLHttpRequest/setRequestHeader/007.htm>:

This sets "Pragma" to an invalid value, which may not be a good idea. 
But what's really needed is the source of the server-side code that 
get's executed.

BR, Julian
