Hmm... to support SVG, what we should do is externalize the javascript
of each test. Then just use a script element to include the same code
into both files. Do you think you could help me do this?

Basically, what we would need to do is:

1. check if the current scripts work in an SVG context - and fix if they don't.
2. make the SVG templates (index.svg).
3. externalize all the JS (call them all test.js).
4. Replace all the HTML files.

I'm not sure what we will do with all the automatically generated
tests. We will need some guidance there from Dom, as I don't know how
that generator works.

Yeah, that's a tough one... the spec says:

"For a widget instance, a user agent MUST expose a unique object that
implements the widget interface to author scripts."

It does not give any guidance as to how the interface must be exposed.
