The tests currently at that URL are actually just the CSS1 tests rewritten 
to use the CSS2.1 format. They are the simplest of the tests available for 
CSS, there are far more "evil" ones floating around in bug systems. (I 
hope to eventually collect them all together and add them to the above.)

You're probably thinking of a different set of tests; the tests Maciej 
mentioned were initially created as XHTML tests and only later had HTML 
versions created (by a script).

They're really not evil tests. They're the very basic tests that were part 
of the CSS1 test suite, but reformulated to be easier to use (e.g. they 
use the Ahem font now).

Another test you might be interested in for the inline box model is:

   http://dbaron.org/css/test/inlinetest

(It needs work before being appropriate for the 2.1 test suite, because it 
uses the wrong format.)


For CSS2.1 I expect we'll have to write a few dozen more tests for the 
inline box model in order to useful test interoperability. We're not there 
yet (the CSS2.1 test suite is in very early stages).
