comment - Using a . suffix to specify a double

Test cases for D0= seem to conflict with the specification for legal literals as defined in " Text interpreter input number conversion" If . as a suffix should be recognized as such, then it should be specified so.

comment - "(" typo in a testcase

forth-standard.org currently shows Forth-2012, not the state of the working document, so any bug fixes will not be seen here for a long time. However, if you are interested in tests, Gerry Jackson maintains a test suite that includes the standard tests. Or if you are interested in officially approved tests, you start with the Hayes test suite, and add the tests from the approved CfVs on forth200x.org. I would use Gerry Jackson's more comprehensive test suite, though; in cases where you think there's a bug there, you can check how the test case works on other systems, check the text of the standard, and then discuss it with Gerry Jackson and/or here.
