Description Anders Carlsson 2005-08-07 13:56:00 PDT
Since the date-big-setdate.html test case prints out the times, and since -expected.txt contains "UTC-8", 
it will fail if the timezone is different.

Also, setDate sets different dates depending on the time zone. 

With UTC+1, setDate(120) sets the date to Thu Apr 30 1970 01:00:00 GMT+0100
With UTC-8, setDate(120) sets the date to Mon Mar 30 1970 16:00:00 GMT-0800

(Both Mozilla and Opera does the same thing, so this isn't a bug)

Determine if the dates are sequential

This patch compares two following dates to see if they're sequential instead of
printing out the dates.

Determine if the dates are sequential

Looks to me like this has some && where it should have || in the success check.

Also, should get rid of the unneeded "if (!validVars)".

Better test

Turns out the test case was really broken. Here's a much simpler one that
should work better
