Hello Mr Hickson,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I had already sent an email to public-css-testsuite@w3.org
but not to public-css-test@w3.org when I sent you that email.

Nowhere does the webpage
http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/CSS2.1/current/
says explicitly that or even refers to minimum font size. There is a list
of assumptions regarding browser settings (minimum canvas dimensions,
medium size being 16px!, scrollbars, scrollbars, default color, default
background-color, device functionalities) but none whatsoever about
minimal font-size. All my email is underlining is that testcase involving
the Ahem font should be using a font-size of at least 13px to avoid what I
experienced.

Best regards,

Gérard
