Why do you often send your reply off-list to me. Why is this not relevant for discussion on list. I guess the frustration of no comments going back to 5 month all came out in one of my recent messages.

Firstly Daniel was supporting Paul from Microsoft. Don't you consider it worthy of the CSS WG knowing what state IE8 is in. Maybe this the reason that Microsoft wants to slow things down. The other test cases go back to answers that were never given to my comments that are now many months old.

You are an implementer and you are on the CSS WG.

I represent the web design community. I am talking about using CSS in a real CSS layout. The CSS mass test suite does not reflect real world cases. My cases do since I have develop them from pulling apart pages to find what was causing the bugs in in the first place in one or two or whatever browser. Real cases which I have created test cases. If this is considered self gratification well Goodbye!
