Since CSS is basically the first thing that actually requires the browser
to parse HTML into some sort of element tree, I think the test suite
should ensure that browers are implying end-tags and implying them at the
correct spots.

For instance in 
<P>Paragraph 1.

<P>Paragraph 2.

There is one character of whitespace after the period in the first
paragraph.  If the style of paragraphs is underlined, this last space
should be underlined too.
