Proof Marks

I'm unclear about the real meaning of some of the proof marks found on, especially, old Webley military revolvers. For example, the nitro powder proof marks. What did such a mark really denote? What did the proof testing entail? I mean, did they fire six nitro powder rounds and give it the stamp if the gun didn't blow up? Did they fire a hundred? I'd be interested in any history or other info on this.
