Welcome.  I've made a few halfhearted vain attempts to run the test suites
in Konqueror 3.0, but haven't been successful.  It would be great to have
some inside help to figure out our stumbling block.

Sad to say, I don't have any recollection of ever seeing toc.js, but the CVS
log says that I committed it.  I would agree with your assessment, the
getElementByTagName() arguments should be lowercase.  I'll change them in
the CVS tonight.

The first step is to enable (or at least ensure) the JsUnit test harness
runs on Konqueror.   Currently, I'm at an impass with the maintainer of
JsUnit and am using a branched version.  Probably the best approach is to
get the CVS code of JsUnit from http://jsunit.sf.net, make any changes
necessary to run the self-tests on Konqueror, and then submit those code
changes to the JsUnit mailing list.  Then I can make the same changes on our

Then you should assemble the tools to build the test suite from the CVS
code, http://www.w3.org/DOM/Test/Documents/DOMTSBuild.html.

I'll follow up later.
