Ah, ok, cool. Glad to know there's precedent, too (with the ligatures 
stuff).

I've updated the test. You may wish to examine it to make sure it is still 
correct, since you wrote it. :-)

Awesome, thanks.

Please let me know when you have text for the other methods too, so I can 
check the test is consistent with those.

Please do make these errata public as soon as possible; testing things 
that aren't even in a spec yet, let alone an errata that came out after 
the test, is not something I would like to make a habbit of. :-)

Cheers,
