CSS 2.1 Test Suite

The CSS2.1 Conformance Test Suite tests conformance to the CSS2.1 specification. It is currently in the earlier stages of development, and is very incomplete. Additionally, some tests may be invalid due to changes in the spec. The latest version is available on the W3C website. The source files are available on the repository website. Anonymous read-only Mercurial access is available to this repository. Note that many of the tests rely on the Ahem font.

Discussion about the CSS2.1 Test Suite takes place on the publicly-archived public-css-testsuite@w3.org mailing list.

CSS 2.1 Errata

Below are the tests that correspond to sections changed and included in the CSS 2.1 Errata. These test should be reviewed for impact from the changes and clarifications. Existing test cases may be modified and adapted to the new spec language or new tests may be created where there is lack of coverage.

Note: Shepherd queries marked with [F] are filtered within the tests for that spec section to make them more relevant to the descriptions on the errata. Queries without the [F] label are results for the entire set of tests for that spec section.
