Implementing Greenstone preview/browser automated tests (using selenium) by means of new class BrowserTest.java, that contains the tests for each tutorial. Generally the matching tutorial test method will be called, passing in the preview/test number for the nth preview being checked, and optional params. Added utility functions to Sam's useful beginnings in GSTestingUtil. And RunGLITest.java, the main testing class, has been modified to pass Runnable objects to createBuildPreviewCycle and quickFormatPreviewCycle() to run the matching preview test method in BrowserTest.java for each (nth) preview. So far, SimpleHTML preview/browser (selenium) solitary test implemented, and the first 3 preview tests of the backdrop (images) collection also implemented of which the first 2 tests were the same.
