i see that the tests for character entities start first with
a jpeg showing a rendering of each character in the 
group.  but no mention is made of the system that 
generated  these characters -- this should be clearly
stated -- is it Amaya, Netscape, webeq or latex ???

then there is the mathml tags to test a browser's rendering
but this code is surrounded by <pre> </pre>  which 
turns off rendering!!!  So to use the page as a test
one must make a local copy and remove the <pre> element

i think this should be changed so that either the <pre> element is
removed from each file  or  that a duplicate block is made (with
pre removed) .  that way browsers could be tested online 
for entities missing or poorly rendered. 

this simple change would greatly increase the usefulness of the
test suite pages IMHO!

the testing looks to be complete and thorough except for the lack
of on-line testing due to <pre> element.    thanks for considering
my suggestion    john russell  VE3LL@RAC.CA
