the page


now points to a lot more tests, with results for major browsers, for the 
double-byte encodings in the Encoding spec.

the tests are grouped as follows:

1 does the browser encode characters as expected per the Encoding spec 
when sending data with a form?

2 are characters that cannot be encoded using the Encoding spec 
algorithms handled as expected?

3 same as 1 for values constructed for an href attribute

4 same as 2 for href values

5 are the characters that can be encoded decoded per the spec? (in the 
case of euc-jp and big5, the characters tested include more than just 
those that can be encoded)

6 are non-conformant byte sequences encountered during decoding dealt 
with per the Encoding spec algorithms?

there is another page at


which shows the results for the latest nightlies (although a small 
number of tests in the other page haven't made it to this one yet)

next step is to analyse why the failures are occuring.
