HEAD Element specifies that both start and end tags are optional;
neither start or end tag for this element is present in the document, but the sub-elements
below should still work.
The title is the only element that is required by the specification, and it should always be made accessible in some way by the User Agent, but the mechanism may vary between User Agents.
This does not really belong as a subsection of 7.4 (HEAD element), but this paragraph has a title, and the User Agent should provide access to it in some way.
One of the META tags in the header section specifies the author of this document. If your browser provides a way to access this, that is excellent. However, the specification explicitly states that "User Agents are not required to support meta data mechanisms".
This document should have a blue background and small circles filled in a darker blue. There are
also large blue circles, but they should blend in with the background, since
they are the same color, and surrounded by transparent pixels in the image file.
If you are forcing your
own styles on the document, please deactivate that at least temporarily so you
can tell whether the browser is handling document-specified styles correctly.
Normal Text should be yellow, so the following word should blend in with its background: word
Unvisited Links should be green, so the following link should blend in with its background unless activated or visited (links to "nowhere"): link
Visited Links should be red, so the following link should blend in with its background (links to this page): link
Active Links should be a brown or tan color, so the following link should blend in with its background when active (links to this page): link
This is most easily testable using stylesheets. If stylesheets are not supported, ignore this test.
This sentence should be green due to the
and bold due to the
This is the next paragraph; neither attribute should be propagated to this sentence.
Headers have been used extensively throughout these tests, but here are some explicit to verify that more important headings are rendered in a larger font that less important headings. H1 is considered the most important heading, and H6 the least important heading (If CSS is supported, you can check that the headers are handled differently, since they are defined to have progressively thinner borders for less important headings).
If CSS is supported, there should be a purple groove border around the ADDRESS element below.Contact person for this page:
