I've been committing changes to the HTML tests(49 errors/40 failures) by Curt on June 4th.
Sorry I haven't kept the group informed of the changes.

I am down to 7 errors and 36 failures.  Below is a hacked list of the errors/failures.

The 7 errors reported are all nullPointer exceptions.
 

HTMLTableElement01 for example tests the caption attribute.
I get the CAPTION element and then try to get the align attribute value.
Is the test wrong to assume that the CAPTION element can be acted on?
Could someone please take a look at this test.  


There are eight tests HTMLHeadingElement01, HTMLHeadingElement02, HTMLHeadingElement03,
HTMLHeadingElement04, HTMLHeadingElement05, HTMLHeadingElement06, HTMLTableElement20
and HTMLTableElement23 that test the align attribute.  The tests look valid to me.  I think Xerces is having
a problem with the align attribute.

The 3 TextArea tests HTMLTextAreaElement01, HTMLTextAreaElement02, HTMLTextArea03 also
look valid to me.  Again I think Xerces is having a problem.

HTMLElement01, HTMLElement30, HTMLElement59, HTMLElement88 and HTMLElement117 
test for the id, title, lang, dir and className attributes on the HEAD element.  I see these as
valid tests.

I also see the the following tests as valid.  
Note: The tests run successfully on IE6.  
HTMLAppletElement07, HTMLAreaElement05, HTMLInputElement01, HTMLInputElement02,
HTMLOptionElement03, HTMLOptionElement08, HTMLSelectElement01, HTMLSelectElement04.
HTMLTableElement21, HTMLTableElement24, HTMLTableElement26, HTMLTableElement27,
HTMLTableElement30, HTMLTableRowElement01

    Any help would be appreciated.
