Date Wed, 14 Jun 2006 03:47:24 GMT
Author: crossley

New Revision: 414042

Do the tests again and summarise results.
WAI tests are vastly improved, still some issues.
Remove comments about tables and old skin (yikes, we haven't updated this page for ages).
Link to the Forrest Zone testbed to test with latest builds.
