Hi,

at the moment, the only obvious test case I have listed on the Wiki is the  
acid-test from email-standards.org

While it's a handy test, there are a coupleof issue. The big one is that  
it isn't very easy to collate results - the test covers a bunch of  
different things, but I need to refer back to the original page and check  
over the two renderings, and even then some of what I am doing is guessing  
what is being tested.

It seems like it would be helpful to producing test cases that included  
the expected result, and stated exactly what they were testing.

I'm thinking something like normal Wiki Editing Help pages - in one  
column, you see something, in another you get an explanation of what you  
should see, and what that means, e.g.

<table border="1">
<tr><td>
Some text
</td><td>
You should have a two-column one-row table.
<img alt="two-column one-row HTML table with a single-thckness cell  
border" src=".."/>
If so, your agent supports basic table layout, and the table attribute  
border.
</td></tr>
<a href="someMagic">Click Here!!1One</a> to submit this result

Thoughts? Anyone got better tests already, or a system that collects  
results?

cheers

Chaals
