I just checked in the test suite for XMLHttpRequest. Unfortunately it is  
not yet put on test.w3.org due to some misconfiguration but that should be  
fixed somewhere next week (people are on vacation). Meanwhile you should  
feel free to put it somewhere else.

These tests are a refactoring of the tests I originally made that were  
hosted on tc.labs.opera.com. Lots of changes went into the specification  
that had not gone into the test suite are now addressed. The test suite  
now uses a framework. Lots of areas previously without testing are now  
tested. And finally a lot of redundant tests have been removed or merged  
making it easier to get through all the tests. tc.labs.opera.com for now  
still hosts the old test suite so people can compare if they want, but I  
plan to take it down eventually (and suitably redirect somewhere).

The new test suite is hosted on dvcs.w3.org:


They also require one file hosted in the HTML WG repository to be put on  


Comments welcome!

(I will email an update once the tests can actually be run from
