Hello,

"Filler text" occupies 86px (or less) in many fonts. If the font family
(say, "Courier New") in use creates a greater than 96px "Filler Text",
then the testcases fails.

A simple and easy solution is to make #div1's width increase from 3in to
4in so that #div1's width is not too tight for the testcase.

The testcase is wrong, incorrect. The testcase designing logic is wrong.
Therefore, I do not see how such testcase could be improved or
corrected.

regards, Gérard
