Thanks! I'll take a look at that.

And that too.

Yesterday I checked in an update that has many more tests ;-). I believe 
it tests all of the assertions 1.1.* through 1.5.* (although not 
touchcancel). I haven't worked on the 1.6.* assertions but based on a 
very quick scan I think Matt already covered most if not all of them.

Anyhow, today, Matt ran my Sept 19 version on his implementation and got 
240/240 Passes! My N9 passes 221 and the 19 failures are all related to 

Sangwhan - would you please run [1] against an Opera implementation?

Are there any other implementations besides Wk/Moz/O?

Agreed and I'm somewhat indifferent although I don't have a problem with 
having a relatively strong correlation between asserts and tests (i.e. 
lots of tests don't bother me).
