Also, here's more information on testharness.js (used by WebApps and 

That file includes embedded documentation that should be very clear to 
anybody who's accustomed to using JavaScript to automate test cases. The 
sources are at http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/resources/

The work on WebDriver will supplement testharness.js for our purposes, 
not to replace it. Specifics questions about testharness.js can be 
answered in real-time on the #testing channel on irc.w3.org:6665. If 
they prefer e-mail, the right list to take those kinds of questions to 
is public-test-infra@w3.org.

So it seems that we should settle on testharness.js for test-cases if at 
all possible.

  hope this helps,
