This set of sub-tests examines compliance with Section 14.3.2 of the HTML4.0 specification.
All stylesheets imported by this page use the HTML
LINK method. See test 2 of the main test suite.
35a. First persistent stylesheet. This should be green.
35b. Second persistent stylesheet. This should be green.
35c. First preferred stylesheet. This should be green at first.
35d. Second preferred stylesheet. This should be green at first.
(35e). First alternative stylesheet. This should be unstyled at first.
(35f). Second alternative stylesheet. This should be unstyled at first.
First, take a note of the colours of the above tests as they appeared when the page was first displayed. If any of the tests are red, or if one (or more) of the first four is (are) unstyled, then the browser should be given the buggy designation (B). Otherwise, continue on to the next step.
If the browser passed the first step, then find the option in the UI that controls alternative stylesheet selection. If the UA is missing such this UI feature, then the browser should be given the failed designation (N). Otherwise, continue on to the next step.
Ensure the current selection (if it is shown) is "Preferred
Set". Also check that only there are only two options available (they
are likely to be called "Preferred Set" and "Alternative Set"). If the
UA does not provide this information, or if it does not list
Preferred Set as being selected, or if there is more than one
option, or if it calls them different things, then that is
not against the spec, just pathetic. Either way, continue on
to the next step.
Change the selection to "Alternative Set" (or whatever looks most likely to stand for "Alternative Set"), and apply the change (this may involve click OK or APPLY, or it may be automatic). If the browser immediately crashes, then the browser should be given the crashed designation (C). Otherwise, continue on to the next step.
Check that, in the six test paragraphs above, the following conditions are now met:
If the test paragraphs change to match the above description, then the browser can be classified as having passed (Y) otherwise it is buggy (B).
