Yes I'm the right person. It's very important to start some kind of 
test suite for XHTML.

I propose that people interested discuss it in the mailing list 
www-html-testsuite and starts the work now.

OK I take the freedom to add you to the list as
	Tantek Celik
	Ian Hickson
	James F. Carter

Vincent Quint, Gerald Oskoboinsky, Takuya Asada, Masayasu Ishikawa 
are already there. This list is semi-public, in the sense archives 
are public but to be subscribed, you must ask me. Just to be sure to 
have a constructive work on it.

A good reference for the work done around test-suite is


So I propose to start now, and to give us, Shane, what kind of test 
of primary test you need.
	What Specs? XHTML 1.0, XHTML Basic, etc.
	What kind of test?
