Thanks Art and Rick for the updates.

I ran the latest version at
https://github.com/AFBarstow/WebEvents/blob/master/single-touch.html on a
couple devices/browsers. Here are the results.

1. Nokia N9 stock WebKit browser passes 235/259 tests. The failing tests are

a. "document.createTouchList exists and correctly creates a TouchList from a
single Touch"; "assert_equals: touchList.length is 1"; "expected 1 but got
b. "TouchList.identifiedTouch attribute exists"; "assert_true:
identifiedTouch attribute in TouchList"; "expected true got false"
c. "TouchList.identifiedTouch attribute is of type function";
"assert_equals: identifiedTouch attribute of type long"; "expected
'function' but got 'undefined'"
d. "document.createTouchList exists and correctly creates a TouchList from a
Touch array"; "assert_equals: touchList.length is 1"; "expected 1 but got 0"
e. "touchstart: touches.identifiedTouch same as first touch point id";
"'undefined' is not a function"
f. "touchend: touch screen/screen is consistent with clientX/clientY";
"assert_true: touch.screenX is less than windows.screen.width"; "expected
true got false"

2. Firefox on Nokia N9 (version 15.0) passes 275/276 tests. The failing test
a. "document.createTouch exists and creates a Touch object with requested
properties"; "assert_equals: touch.clientX is
touch.pageX-window.pageXOffset."; "expected 15 but got 0"

3. Opera Mobile on Nokia N8 (version 12.00.2254) passes 236/259 tests. The
failing tests are the same as items a through e with the N9 stock browser.

Regards, Cathy.
