Yup! And I'm happy to do local fixes, if I can find the updated version
of the file to fix. :)

Thanks -- I'll direct future similar questions there instead of to

OK. It sounds like that process might be what's involved here. Do these
tests *need* to be HTML (not XHTML), by the way?

I'm asking where the files that I linked in my first message on this
thread (and linked from the flexbox ED spec) are tracked / managed.

For reference, here's the link to one such file (in the testsuite):

Note that this file ends in .htm, not .xhtml.

Right, those are the working .xhtml versions, not the converted/broken
.htm versions. I'm looking for where the .htm versions were added &
where *they* are tracked.

As above, this is the .xhtml version

That doesn't have the version of the test that I'm asking about, though,
so it doesn't have the changes that I'm interested in visible.
