Robin and I have done most of the work for the HTML test suite; I'd be 
more than happy to help out for WebApps as well, and I suspect the same 
is true for Robin.

For the record, I'd like to note that, for simplicity and ease of 
collaboration, I'd prefer to share a repository with HTML and other test 
suites in this area.
