Hi Richard,

The testing tools look extremely useful. I think these tests may be very useful for submitting bugs. Is there someone in i18n who might be able to review Dave's Prioritization Document [1] to see if additional tests should be added?

ah, i was unaware of that. Looks interesting. I'll take a closer look, but i have a couple of observations below after a quick scan.  Perhaps the spreadsheet should point people to the html page?

[1] are you aware of the tests we have in the i18n test suite – and more importantly, the fact that we have pages showing how well features are supported on browsers.

for example, section 3.3.2 of the html file is about ruby.  We have http://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/results/ruby-html which shows results of basic tests for ruby markup implementation for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, Edge and IE.  (We need to develop tests for ruby styling still, and i have that in mind now that Firefox support the CSS Ruby spec.)

you can run the tests yourself, eg. to see the first test listed, click on the test link column to go to http://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/run?base=html/semantics/text-level-semantics/the-ruby-element&batch=ruby-html&test=ruby-styling-001.html

it's important to note, btw, that it's possible for anyone to send in results for additional browsers, including Android, Safari Mobile, Chrome Mobile, UC Browser (chinese), Opera Android and Opera Mini, or another browser. (Instructions are at

you can find all the i18n tests we have at http://www.w3.org/International/tests/

[2] it's great that you're planning to encourage the implementers to 
address certain things. I think the i18n folks should coordinate with 
you on things of mutual interest.  I'll see what i can do to raise 
awareness with them.

[3]  the References section contains a link to Latin Req, but not to 
other lreqs.  You can find a list of them, and other requirements docs at
