I don't think we had a lot of success with this historically.

Coming back to the specific issues at hand:

1. http/tests/uri/escaped-entity.html is disabled because it affects  

The effect is slightly slightly different text rendering - kerning  
gets disabled in "Vertical blur" text. This is caused by trying to  
display a rare Unicode symbol in the former test, which magically  
affects another test much later.

The way to resolve this for this is to make a standalone test case,  
file a bug, and then to remove the weird character from HTTP test  
output. It's not clear if this is a WebKit or CG bug.

2. svg/W3C-SVG-1.1/filters-conv-01-f.svg fails on Windows

Closely related to the above. We probably have wrong results landed,  
in fact.

3. platform/mac/editing/input/devanagari-ligature.html is disabled,  
because it was failing on Snow Leopard Release

The checked-in results are correct, so it's come other test that  
affects it. The new results seem very wrong - the line got twice as  
long. Obviously, we need to figure out what affects it, and how.

I'm going to make a test and file a bug for #1. Any volunteers for #3?
