    66 Take the testcases that you've written a in a word doc or excel and put one test case into one xml document.  I've heard some feedback that potentially this ends up in a huge set of test cases.  That's only if you write test cases in the form : "Test case 1: click the submit button...end of test case".

    69 My personal philosohpy is to encourage people to write workflow or task based driven testcases and have the tester use their brains to find issues.  Check out Exploratoy testing by James Bach at http://satisfice.com .  If they need to look at the UI in very high detail then the test case could simply be "compare the UI to the mockup and here's the link to the screen shot: http://(screen shot checked in to subversion)".  If there is no mock up, trying to describe a GUI using words is completely ridiculous.
