Test Inventory

 

BrowserCaps browser tests are designed to assess browser compatibility with the coding responsible for a number of essential features of a website's graphic user interface, including:

Links:

Character Formatting:

  • Does the browser support standard font sizing methods such as < big > and < small > tags?
  • Does the browser support the color attribute of the < font > tag?
  • Does the browser support the numerical size attribute of the < font > tag?
  • Does the browser support the subscript < sub > tag or the superscript < sup > tag?

Dynamic Content: Does the browser support the < marquee >, which causes text to roll across a defined graphic space?

Entities: Does the browser correctly render the accented non-ASCII characters in the [ISO-8859-1] subset of the "Added Latin 1" entity set?

Headings: Does the browser render Headings 1-6 in the correct size relative to selected font sizes with the use of < head > code?

Images and Figures:

  • Does the browser correctly display the "alt" attribute in the < img > code?
  • Does the browser correctly display client-side imagemaps using the < map > and < usemap > attributes of the < img > tag?
  • Does the browser support the < fig > tag?
  • Does the browser support the "align" attribute for right or left orientation of images in the < img > tag?
  • Does the browser support the "height" and "width" attributes for the orientation of images in the < img > tag?
  • Does the browser support the "hspace" and "vspace" attributes in the < img > tag?
  • Does the browser support graphic formats such as GIF, JPEG, PNG and others?

Does the browser support animated GIF formats?

Additional tests look at browsers' relative abilities to support comments; render ActiveX, Java, JavaScript and VBScript; correctly display tables and lists; and handle Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Tests also exist to check for browsers' abilities to support JPEG and GIF backgrounds, frames and server pushes.
