Test files that contain the accessibility problem are labeled "positive". 
That is, they test positive for the problem. Test files that are labeled 
"negative" do not contain the problem.

I think of it like a blood test. You want your blood to test negative for 
Hepatitis - the virus is not in your blood. You want your HTML files to test 
negative for accessibility problems - they are not there.

Yes, this is valid XHTML 1.0 strict.

We're trying to keep the test files short and to the point.
