Yes - while also reading the text underneath to see what to do for
each test.

I guess you are looking with the "tiny" harness. Use the "full" one
instead which has much larger images. There is a link from tiny to full.

Just to clear things up, its not a *conformance* testsuite.

In other words, if an implementation passes 100% of the tests, that
does not get it any certification of an kind and it might fail other

However, its very useful to compare different implementations, or
different builds of a single implementation.

To use it, if you have an html browser that either natively or via a
plugin has SVG support: start with
if you are running it online, or full-index.html if you are running it

Click any of the links to go to that test.

You can start at any test and click on the links i the test harness to
go to the next, or previous, tests.
