Hi Björn,

I am preparing (it is still in the making) a similar test case here:

http://www.malform.no/html5/fragment+IRI/

The goal is only to test IRIs that are valid in HTML
5 and XHTML, and to discover how the UAs treat different variants 
of  such IRIs and identifiers, what they consider equal (including
what they consider "more equal", ie what they pick if there are
several identical) and to see how UAs allow users to interact with
IRIs (copy/pase, hover/statusbar) - for intance UAs differs on
whether they let users copy the IRI or the URL. Firefox and iCab
lets you copy percentage encoded URLs. Opera, Safari lets you copy
the IRI.

Comments are welcome.
