Also, if anyone else is trying to use this, in order to get it to work
you have to follow these steps:

1. Run a local server.  I'll assume that you create a folder called
CSSharness, and put the /harness folder from the webkit SVN in there.

2. Download all the tests.  Put them in CSSharness/20100917/html4 (or
xhtml, as appropriate).

3. Put testinfo.data in CSSharness/20100917.

4. Run /CSSharness/harness/harness.html.
