A herculean effort! This grand idea will go a long way to helping Web
authors and vendors boost CSS support. Bravo!

A general suggestion I have is that the test area of each page include
*every single HTML tag* with the CSS rule applied. I know this is a lot of
work, but it's not enough to know, for example, that text-align works on
text. Does it work on IMG? TABLE? EMBED? Well, anyway, you see what I mean.

Also, on each page, a link to the corresponding section of the spec would
be nice.
