It is implemented, but the name is 'assert-xml' please check the latest version
look for 'assert-xml'

Note: the FOTS driver should be used together with the -o output.xml and
--indent of the Zorba CLI.
The user will then get trace output in the text window and the output of the
tests in the output.xml file.
Whenever a test was run, there is a trace output for it's name on the command
Whenever a test that was run failed, there is a trace message for that pointing
also the name of the test case it belongs to for easy identification.
I have updated the README.txt to reflect these issues, see

People must get used to the terminology:
- FOTS means the testsuite from W3C: hence when a test is wrong => file a bug
- FOTS driver is the thing that runs the testsuite: hence when an error is
detected in the FOTS driver = > file a bug in Launchpad with a "fots-driver" TAG
- test case is a single test
- test set is unit (a bunch) of tests grouped together because they test a
The renaming you suggest would confuse people.

If you really insist then I can rename the files, sure...

Do not know what you mean by "dependency output": can you please be more
