Historically, tests needed to be in HTML4 because Internet Explorer (8 
and lower) was not able to parse accordingly xhtml+xml types of files.

If the src file was an XHTML file, then I believe it is converted into 
an .htm file and such .htm file is not trackable; only the src file is 
trackable (with history of changes, history of versions in Shepherd 
system).

If an .htm version of the test is created, then its associated reference 
file must also be in an .htm version.

Daniel, if I understand your post - and I believe I do now (sorry if I 
did not the first time) - , then the src file must use

<style type="text/css"><![CDATA[
     CSS FOR TEST
]]></style>

and then XHTML-to-HTML autoconversion problems of CSS code will not 
occur and should not occur.

If the src file was an XHTML file, then I believe it is converted into 
an .htm file and such .htm file is not trackable; only the src file is 
trackable (with history of changes, history of versions in Shepherd 
system).
