Description Robert Burns 2007-02-20 22:24:30 PST
WebKit fails to even load the W3C/NIST DOM Conformance Test Suite. I couldn't determine why. This works in Fireforx 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,

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?

With the availability of web-platform-tests, and many of those running in-tree, I don't think this bug is really relevant any more. Please re-open if you disagree, and provide steps to reproduce on a recent WebKit-based browser.
