What I need is a description of exactly what [2] should be for any given 
DOM. I don't have any descriptions. The test files are all (in my case) 
exactly one line long, and so it would probably be best if there was a way 
to include a bunch of tests in one file.

Note that the tests themselves can't be preceeded by a comment (I assume 
the test above is intended to be passed to the test harness literally), 
since many of the tests are checking how comments are handled.

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
