Thanks for the status review.

My understanding of the status of test samples 
through 004 was that I made edits, reported at
to address earlier issues,
and that we later needed to check if the 
technique references were still OK after CR publication.
Tim did this for these samples and also wrote 
that my earlier edits seemed fine:

The metadata were modified (more precise title, 
description and purpose), but not the sample file.
I assume you are proposing to change this from a 
pass to a fail based on your argument that 
summary attributes on layout tables are not prohibited.
However, there is a failure F46 (referenced by 
the metadata): "Failure of Success Criterion 
1.3.1 due to using th elements, caption elements, 
or non-empty summary attributes in layout tables"

>30 - Issues raised in the CR has not been addressed

I propose the following change to address the issue:
- add a column for the courses for which the 
students have enrolled (more "realistic" table),
- change the summary to: "This table list 
students with their student ID and the course for 
which they have enrolled. Students are listed alphabetically by family name."

We have a number of test samples with forms that 
may be submitted but where we don't want users to 
land on an "Error 404", so we have dummy pages 
where the form submission "lands" and that aren't 
really part of the test case. Where did you find that comment?

See comment on 036. To conform to the naming 
convention, all files ending on "_processformdummy.html" need to be renamed.
