Thanks. Does this mean I should operate under the assumption that all
submitted XHTML tests are going to be autoconverted and displayed as
HTML, then?

(If so, it seems like it'd be more worthwhile for me to manually convert
them to HTML myself, so that I can verify that they work & predict what
the result will look like.)

What determines whether it'll be "and" vs. "or", in the "and/or"
branches you mentioned above? Is there any way to predict into what
format a test will be converted? (or if it it'll be converted at all)

E.g. If I hand-convert my submitted tests to HTML & resubmit them in
that format (as I'm now sort of planning on doing), how do I know
whether they will be actually displayed as that HTML, as opposed to
being auto-converted back to XHTML due to some cruel twist of fate? :)

Ah, thanks -- I see that is documented here:
 http://testthewebforward.org/docs/test-format-guidelines.html

I'll add that numbering change to my list of planned fixes.
