I'm not sure we actually came up with a formal test for that one,
although I do remember we did some quick experimentation that showed
that indeed, quite a few browsers were not that smart wrt display:none.

I repaired the lack of such a formal test with:
aka http://w3.org/brief/MTEw
with results available at:
that confirm that Opera does it, but not Firefox, nor Blazer, nor
Netfront, nor IE6.

Feel free to try your own browser (mobile or not) with it; I've also
linked that test (as others previously written) from the test suites
