Martin should look at. Martin?

Only "interesting" tests are included on the X-platform pages. If a test
(or example) doesn't fail in any way it's excluded from the page to keep
its size down. I haven't searched all our logs for 21.string.access but
in the ones I looked it passed at 100%.

Btw., this could easily be changed if we think that including all tests
would be useful. Just keep in mind that we have 379 tests, 135 examples,
and 166 locales. If all them were listed we'd end up with nearly 700
rows of data.
