An initial contribution of Mozilla reftests towards the CSS
2.1 test suite is contained in:

These are all in reftest format, but I've added the CSS test suite
metadata to the test (but not the reference) for each, and hopefully
even attributed the authorship correctly while I was doing so.

The reftest.list files contain 150 == or != assertions.  A few of
those are actually tests that Mozilla doesn't pass.  I'd give
particular warning about the floats/other-float-outside* tests,
which, while correct according to the current spec, I strongly
believe *should* be incorrect tests, and no browser passes them.
(This is issue 101 in http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/css2.1 , described
in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2009Jan/0445.html .)

I went through our existing tests relatively quickly to find tests
to contribute; there are probably a bunch of others that we have but
that have test filenames that are just bug numbers; I didn't go
through any such tests to see if they were CSS 2.1 tests.  There are
also a number of tests that I'd like to contribute but don't yet
have permission from the authors to contribute under the licenses in
