This test passes for me on a UA that does not support this property. You
can add an intermediate step to first verify the property is supported.

I have in the past also criticized some tests for not being designed to
fail when the test is testing an invalid syntax (or invalid declaration)
and when an UA does not support a property. I think this issue should be

shows that IE10 scores 21% but, in reality, the only tests IE10 passes
are those testing invalid syntax causing parsing errors.

Some CSS2.1 and CSS3 tests will actually be passed by buggy or old
browsers (say, Netscape 4 or IE4). I think this is wrong.


Opera has now 2 accounts:


will return "No Assets Found." while

will return "15 Test Cases Found".

I think there should be only 1 Opera account.



First, use directional navigation to navigate the focus to the "START"
link below.

Test passes if navigating left once moves the focus to the "FINISH" link.

I have no idea if this is possible... but is it possible to make the
wording of pass-fail conditions sentences in tests like those to be less
technical? I am asking because I really do not know this.

I am using Opera 12.16 and I have no idea what exactly I must do in such



your comments in

should not be scattered around.
