WebKit fails to even load the W3C/NIST DOM Conformance Test Suite. I couldn't determine why. This works in Fireforx 1.5.0.9. I marked this as major since I think tracking down the problem may be simple and this has significant importance for tracking down other DOM issues.

It would definitely be nice to make this page work, but please note that most of these tests are available in WebKit repository anyway (LayoutTests/dom).

W3C tests use JSUnit framework for automation. JSUnit framework (jsunit.net) doesn't officially support webkit based browsers. I'm trying to dig into the issue, IMO, problem is with JSUnit framework. Talked to JSUnit author Edward Hieatt, as per him,

Hi,

JsUnit is no longer supported.  We suggest using Jasmine instead: http://pivotal.github.com/jasmine/

IMO JSUnit isn't the framework W3C should probably bet on. Any thoughts?
