While trying to make a reftest for


I noticed that inline boxes created by <strong> elements are not handled
exactly the same by all browsers and there is no rule or specification
on that.

Firefox 8.0, Opera 11.60, Konqueror 4.7.3 will make give such inline box
a height of 20px while Chrome 16.0.912.63 will give such inline a height
of 19px. Such inline box then affect line box height of container
differently for the respective browsers.
