Charles, your statement would make testing almost impossible and very expensive. I would need almost as much money as Bill Gates, Donlad Trump "AND" the President makes to at least go along with the testing procedure for your uniform question.
 
One additional question for Richard. I thought Chris Reeve was dead. My name is William.
 
Why are you accusing me of being "Superman"?

No, it is not reasonable to assume that. Someone might have helpfully found an example like yours and pointed to it so that the bug gets fixed. You are also welcome to do so.

Actually, this is unfortunately not the case, unless you accept "all browsers that people use" as the list (which would require you to run about half a dozen operating systems and several different mobile phones).
