"All elements" doesn't mean just all HTML elements. Anyway, most HTML  
elements are grouped too so it doesn't really make sense to test them all.  
For instance, <p>, <span>, <h1>-<h6> and <div> are quite similar in  
display except for some default font-size, margin and display differences.  
Then there's a whole bunch of HTML elements that CSS is not defined for  
(unfortunately) such as form controls.
