BenToWeb's XHTML + CSS test suite (first version)


As promised yesterday, I'm sending some information on BenToWeb's XHTML + 
CSS test suite. It consists of 477 "test cases" (i.e. a test file - 
sometimes several - and its metadata in TCDL). The test cases map directly 
to WCAG 2.0 success criteria, not to techniques and failures because there 
were insufficient techniques documented by WCAG when we started working on 
This version was developed last year, so it is based on the WCAG 2.0 
Working Draft of 30 June 2005. We are currently updating the test suite to 
the Last Call Working Draft. I have also planned to create a document that 
maps test cases to the current set of WCAG techniques and failures.
The test suite is available at This 
page contains a long list of links to the test cases. For each test case, 
the first link takes you to the HTML version of the metadata (which in turn 
contains the link to the actual test files), and the second link takes you 
to the TCDL file (XML). This means that the metadata for the test suite are 
not in one big file (the approach used in the ATRC test suite), but in 
separate files per test case.
