CSS Import Test - Test 72
This test is a stress test. It has a persistent stylesheet that
will take over five minutes (5*60=300 seconds) to download (whatever
the connection you have!). This is performed using a small script.
You may wish to see sample
output from this script (which will take five seconds to
6. Stylesheet linked in using <link>. This is a
control test. If this test fails, then none of the tests below should
be expected to succeed.
72a. Rule at top of five minute stylesheet.
72b. Rule mid way through five minute stylesheet.
72c. Rule at bottom of five minute stylesheet.
How to decide if the browser has passed
- If test 6 is unstyled, then either browser does not support this
kind of linking, or it is waiting for all persistent stylesheets to
download before styling anything. Mark it as a maybe (M). If after 5 minutes all the tests go green, then
mark it as passed (Y).
- If test 6 above is green and the other lines are not, and this
page has displayed fine and quickly, then the browser is
buggy (B). If eventually, 72a, 72b and
72c turn green (unless your browser times out, or something), then the
browser is partially ok (P).
- If the browser does not display this page, or at least not before
5 minutes have elapsed, then this browser has failed (N). This is because it is silly to wait for all related
resources to be downloaded before displaying the page.
