I checked the above page. And mark element test, where the k has been 
replaced with a  kelvin-K, is buggy. The test says "highlighted if 
matched". And in Safari, it gets highlighted. However, when you look at 
the DOM in the Inspector, then it is evident that it is not the kelvin 
K but the normal, lower-case k that is used in the element. (So 
javascript apparently replaces the kelvin K with the normal k.) If we 
revise the the results due to this error, then it seems that 
Chrome/Safari behave like IE10 and FF. My suspicion is that it is the 
same issue in Opera (Dragonfly would not open).
