Fantasai,

What about replacing 10px by 13px in testcases using the Ahem font? That
was my main suggestion.
With 13px, the testcases would be better in 2 ways:
1- nothing to read, to adjust for those who have set minimum font-size to
12px or to 13px. It's sort of a fallback.. and
2- 10px is for fine print stuff. The default, normal browser font size in
several browsers is not 10px, not even 13px but 16px.

Best regards,

Gérard
