Right. I was thinking that the test instructions for a specifically
CDF test could be much more explicit, because the HTML component would
be part of the actual test rather than some optional harness.

For CDF, I think Opera is incorrect.

I'd like to do some more testing - actually Doug Schepers had some
tests for this - and would like to see them in the CDF test suite.
