Once the table is loaded, individual tests can be checked in another  
tab,
returning to the main table tab is quite quick in Amaya 11 MacOS 10.5

Yet those tests seem designed for masochists.
I found a large number of failures in all browsers I tested.
Fudging a pass on Acid-n test must be a geek badge,
I suspect the problem is that a browser designed to correctly
render CSS2.1 as presented in this large table of tests,
would fail to "correctly" render all the rubbish around the web
which has been written for IE in all its versions.
