Subject: Re: [oiic-formation-discuss] Acid Tests
Foul. That means my mate Steve can't run it 'easily'. He's a casual
observer. He's blind.
No go Sam.
"An acid test runs a comprehensive test of an ODF instance
and generates the results in a manner that makes failures
obvious to the tester."
Acid2 is a test page for web browsers published by The Web Standards Project (WaSP). It has been written to help browser vendors make sure their products correctly support features that web designers would like to use. These features are part of existing standards but haven't been interoperably supported by major browsers. Acid2 tries to change this by challenging browsers to render Acid2 correctly before shipping.
Acid2 is a complex web page. It uses features that are not in common use yet, because of lack of support, and it crams many tests into one page. The aim has been to make it simple for developers and users to check if a browser passes the test. If it does, the smiley face on the left will appear. If something is wrong, the face will be distorted and/or shown partly in red.This could be translated as:
I'm currently of the opinion that there will need to be too much manual intervention in any compliance test with ODF as it stands for an 'acid test' suite to be of interest to the casual user.
