[css-backgrounds] 20+ tests need correction; others need review

# Gérard Talbot (a day ago)

Hello,

At least 20 tests have significant issues (incorrect, bad linkage, not streamlined, can not fail, unclear target, insufficiently challenging) and I suspect that a bunch of others (say, 20) need thorough review. Now, tests with broken linkage have been reported before < lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-css-testsuite/2016Dec > and

have not been corrected nor been identified as GitHub issues.

I am not looking or trying to blame anyone: I know we're all very busy and there are many CSS modules. But I am saying that CSS3 Backgrounds and Borders test suite coverage, at first sight, seems to me insufficient (for sure, §6. Border Images; some other sections too) and 40-ish tests need to be corrected and/or reviewed.

test.csswg.org/suites/css-backgrounds-3_dev/nightly-unstable/html4/border-image-slice-007.htm (this test is currently the only test in the CSS3 Backgrounds and Borders test suite testing the 'fill' reserved keyword. Worse: 9grid40-30-20-10-lime.png file does not exist in Microsoft's codebase.)
