Updated tests: Ruby markup

See the tests
See the results: Ruby markup served as text/html

These tests examine how a user agent handles various levels of ruby markup and styling. The tests were largely rewritten to provide additional information and make results clearer. In addition, objectives and descriptions were added for all tests. The results page is new. Please send comments to www-international@w3.org.

Updated tests and results: list-style-type

See the tests
See the results: armenian, georgian, lower-greek

These tests check whether a user agent supports internationalised CSS-based numbering methods for lists. More extensive tests and results have been added for Armenian, Georgian, and lower-case Greek numbering, based on CSS3 algorithms but to support the CSS 2.1 Candidate Recommendation.

New tests: IDN display

See test page 1, test page 2
See the results of test page 1, test page 2

These tests check whether a user agent displays IDNs (Internationalized Domain Names) as Unicode, punycode or otherwise in the status bar. User agents that try to detect possible homograph attacks do so in different ways. These tests explore some of those approaches.

Updated test results: Automatic font assignment for CJK text

See the results

Results were updated for new versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera. Changes in behaviour were noted in IE7 and Opera compared to previous tests.

New tests: UTF-8 auto-detection

Link to first test page

This series of tests checks whether a user agent automatically recognizes that a file declared as US-ASCII is really UTF-8 encoded, and displays the text as UTF-8, even if the encoding declarations say otherwise.

Initial test results are also provided.

Updated tests: UTF-8 signature

Link to first test

Some user agents produce unexpected results when displaying files that contain a UTF-8 signature (byte order mark). This series of tests allows you to see whether that holds true for your user agent.

The tests were simplified and better documented, and a new test was added related to PHP includes. An initial set of results was also added.

RTL content and browser chrome

New tests

This is a set of pages that examine how right-to-left and bidirectional text affects user agents outside of the main content area.

The tests seek to determine whether a user agent handles browser crome differently when the html, or the body, or the head element has the dir attribute set to rtl. Some user agents move the vertical scrollbar and display javascript popup boxes right-to-left in certain circumstances.

Hreflang content generation

Updated test results

Updated to reflect latest user agent behaviour, and substantially reorganized to make maintenance easier.

Categories: Test, Update

Automatic font assignment for CJK text

Updated test results

Updated to incorporate latest browser results, and reorganized considerably. Doesn’t repeat the information in the test. Should make maintenance easier.

Categories: Test, Update

Automatic font assignment for CJK text

Updated test

Added a preview facility to allow easier checking of font glyphs, and incorporated mention of separate settings in some UAs for Traditional Chinese in Taiwan vs. Hong Kong.
