Hi Tobie et al,

I'd like to contribute this stab at a start-to-finish "how to" for new test
writers re: writing tests for the HTML testsuite, based on how I've gone
about it and the feedback to my pull requests:


I just began submitting tests this winter myself, and as of only a few days
ago joined as an invited expert/member of the html testsuite task force to
boot, so if I've misunderstood anything about W3C's
processes/preferences/priorities, set me straight and I'm happy to make

Also, I just clued into the existence/relevance of the IDLHarness testing
mechanism, which is quite a missing link for this tutorial (and probably
for my previously submitted pull requests, too).  So, I'll look into that
next.  I can add to/revise these pages accordingly once I do so.

(If anyone can point me to some existing documentation about IDLharness,
please shout out! Thanks.)

Hope it might be useful,


Dzenana T.

I'm hoping to be able to have a first pass at that asap so we can discuss
it further.
