[Seaside] [XHTML] WAFormTag>>before

All looks good so far. One quick comment about test cases, however, is
that what I ended up doing here is slightly different. Instead of
subclassing a specific testcase to do rendering passes, I pepper
existing test cases with rendering checks whenever I care to do it.
Here's a drill,

c := MyComponent new.
self assertString: (self render: c) equals: '<a


TestCase>>render: aComponent
 | html |
 html := WARenderCanvas empty.
 aComponent renderContentOn: html.
 ^html contents

You could even refactor that down to,

self assertRender: c equals: '<a href="&amp;1">200.00</a>'


TestCase>>assertRender: aComponent equals: aString
 | html |
 html := WARenderCanvas empty.
 aComponent renderContentOn: html.
 self assertString: html contents equals: aString


TestCase>>assertString: a equals: b
 a = b ifFalse: [(Differator newOn: a and: b) open].
 self assert: a = b

Other reasons for not using the new WARenderCanvasTestCase would have be
the fact that we have our own hierarchy under SUnitToo's TestCase, not
SUnit's and we have different canvas renderers for different purposes
and specialized WARenderCanvasForTest doesn't play well there either.
But perhaps that's all because we already have baggage to carry, perhaps
new users wouldn't need to worry themselves with such obstructions,
although I still think being able to add rendering tests anywhere in our
test case hierarchy is greatly encouraging me to write more tests.
