"Completion of the W3C CSS Test Suite provides a vital component for HTML and XML developers. Now developers can produce products and benchmark them to insure compliance to CSS. Knowledgeable consumers also benefit by having an accessible test suite to ensure high quality software compliance to CSS standards."
-- Glen Rippel, Director of Planning, Bitstream Inc.
"With the completion of the CSS1 Test Suite, the W3C is now able to provide a stable point of reference for both vendors and authors. Given the recent surge of interest in, and demand for, standards compliance, this work and the forthcoming CSS2 Test Suite should provide an excellent groundwork for implementors to improve their CSS rendering and thus further the development of the Web. Case Western Reserve University is proud of its role in creating the CSS1 Test Suite, and we feel confident that it will be useful to the Web community as a whole."
-- Eric Meyer, Case Western Reserve University
"Our customers have made it very clear that standardization is one of the most critical issues facing Web authors today. As Macromedia continues to develop standards-based authoring tools, the W3C's test suite helps to ensure that our customers can take full take advantage of new Web technologies like Cascading Style Sheets, and that all implementations of CSS will act the same way."
-- Sho Kuwamoto, Macromedia
"NIST is also happy that it was able to assist in the development of the CSS1 Test Suite,"
-- Tim Boland, NIST
"The CSS1 Test Suite promises to help bring future browser releases to an interoperable standard of conformance with the 1996 and future specifications. It's about accountability, and it's about time!"
-- Todd Fahrner, Verso
"We've come to rely on the power and performance of Cascading Stylesheets in everything from our news service to our search engine. This comprehensive test suite will allow the browser and tool developers to push their CSS support even further - something Web designers are eagerly anticipating."
