Test Suites


Mozilla is proposing a new format for CSS tests. It can’t be used to test everything, but can make testing many things much simpler and easy to automate. The basic principle is that each test consists of two files, which must be rendered identically. A complex test can then be compared against a simpler page that has the same result. This is better than comparing against an image because it equalizes font availability, anti-aliasing, and other platform- and UA-specific aspects of CSS rendering.

Resolved: we accept tests in reftest format as well, as long as they have the required metadata
Rationale: Many tests easier to write, and especially, to run this way.
