Hello fantasai
Please review the test case which I've submitted here

The corresponding reftest files - text-transform-kana-001-ref.xht and
reftest.list and a reftest folder are here. ->

In response to your last comments received on 2/8/2011, I have changed
as follows:

Please kindly advise if I need any further updates.

Hello Taka,
Here are my comments.

OK. You can remove the .html version, then. (You have to use
your subversion client to remove it, otherwise it stays in the

That's not the point. The reftest format allows automation of the
test suite, so while it's good for the test to be self-explanatory
and human-checkable, it should also have a reftest reference.

(This allows layout engine developers to hook the tests into their
regression test framework, to run the tests automatically very
frequently to make sure recent changes have not broken anything.)

Yes, I created a reftest (text-transform-kana-001-ref.xht), and a
reftest.list which is saved in a reftest folder.

Aren't there half-width kana characters as well? They should be
tested as well, otherwise the test is not truly comprehensive.

Yes, I included them.

Very good. Some comments on this:

1. Use blue, not green.

Yes, I changed.

2. The reference character is also affected by the text-transform.
If you look at the source code for the tests you are using as
a model, e.g.

you will notice that they are written so that only the character
being tested is affected by the text transform: the reference
character is unaffected.

Yes, I focused on the charcters to be tested.

3. Large kana and small kana look alike; they differ only in size.
Therefore the instructions should emphasizes that the match must
be in both shape *and size*. Otherwise the tester will look and
assume the test passes even if the kana are not transformed: the
two shapes obviously match.

Yes, I added 'in both shape *and size*' to the viewing text.

4. Use a larger font size, e.g. 200%. This will make it easier to
see differences in size, which are particularly tricky to detect.

Yes, I replaced 120% with 200% in order to be enlarged.

Last comment: I would suggest naming the test text-transform-kana-001;
if other people find things to test for "text-transform: kana", this
will make it easier to keep related tests together.

Yes, I changed the file name as exactly you suggested.
