Re: Use of deprecated "background" attribute in MathML 3 testsuite

Good timing.  We were are declaring a freeze on changes to the testsuite for
the next few weeks so implementers will not see changes as they test their
implementation against the test suite a report the results.  If you see any
further problems, mark them as broken when using the testsuite runner (last
link on

I have updated the tests to use mathbackground instead of background and
that should show up in the built tests (you may have to force a refresh of
the browser cache).

Also note that Sam Dooley spotted several images that were bad and a few
tests that were bad.  These too have been updated.

I hope that you will be able to run the testsuite on the current state of
MathML in Firefox and report the results so that we can include that in our
implementation report, as required for moving to "proposed recommendation".
