These specs are designed to run inside the mobile device that implements it - it will fail in the DESKTOP browser.
These set of tests is designed to be used with PhoneGap. You should initialize a fresh PhoneGap repository (git clone git://github.com/phonegap/phonegap.git) and then toss these files into the www or assets folder, replacing the contents.
Make sure you include phonegap-*.js in the www folder. You also need to edit phonegap.js to reference the phonegap-*.js file you are testing. For example, to test with phonegap-0.9.6.1, the phonegap.js file would be:
This is done so that you don't have to modify every HTML file when you want to test a new version of PhoneGap.
The goal is to test mobile device functionality inside a mobile browser. Where possible, the PhoneGap API lines up with HTML 5 spec. Maybe down the road we could use this spec for parts of HTML 5, too :)
