This test assumes a list marker box contains a marker followed by a space; it logically expects the latter to collapse with the leading space of the first list item by positioning the marker inside. It fails on all major browsers today as markers have padding and/or margin that does not collapse with an adjoining space. 

The CSS spec in section 12.5.1 [1] does not clarify how 'list-style-position: inside' should create the space between the marker and the text. 

The test case is currently invalid and needs to be updated or removed.
