> ChrisL: Also, how do we find existing tests that might need changes?


The short answer
================

in Shepherd, search for tests that have the Status field set to Need 
Works and, to refine your search, have the Whiteboard field set to 
[NeedsWork=Incorrect] and/or [NeedsWork=Precision] and/or 
[NeedsWork=Format]

--

[NeedsWork=Incorrect] for necessary changes: sometimes the test should 
be rejected and replaced by a correct test, sometimes the test code 
should be corrected

http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css21/status/issue/whiteboard/Incorrect/
returns 66 tests with 52 from/authored by Microsoft

--

[NeedsWork=Precision] for less important changes (often - but not always 
- involving fractional pixel or non-dividable computed font size by 5px 
without a remainer)

http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css21/status/issue/whiteboard/Precision/
returns 78 tests with 59 from/authored by Microsoft

--

[NeedsWork=Format] for minor change (test is valid but does not meet 
some Test Format Guidelines).

http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css21/status/issue/whiteboard/Format/
returns 42 tests with 23 from/authored by Microsoft

--

Rejected Microsoft tests:
http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css21/author/microsoft/status/rejected/
returns 31 tests from/authored by Microsoft

--


The long answer
===============

Any test that has the Status field set to "Submitted for Review" 
(previously "Awaiting for Review") [1] and, to a lesser degree, 
"Resubmitted for Review" might need changes.

[1]:
http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css21/status/submitted/
returns 1010 tests.

[2]:
http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/testcase/spec/css21/status/resubmitted/
returns 156 tests.

And there is also tests with Status field set to "Rejected": the 
original author has to read the comments, feedback and then agree to 
remove the tests or move it to a CSS3 module (eg tests involving 
'display: run-in').


http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/testcase/containing-block-011/
http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/testcase/containing-block-013/
http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/testcase/containing-block-015/
were originally reviewed by me as incorrect tests and then, on top of 
this, the spec changed. So, these 3 tests are in need of changes, 
corrections.


And there are some ('table-layout: fixed' and 'visibility: collapse') 
tests I authored that I know will/must arise a spec issue.
