<title>CSS Test: Specifying em/ex on the root element</title>
        <meta name="assert" content="Units 'em' and 'ex' refer to the
initial value of the property when specified on the root element
of a document.">

There is no property with em or ex specified on the root element in the
testcase. So, the testcase is not testing what it is declaring to test.

The testcase can never fail, regardless of font used. And the font
family in use is never controlled, so we never can predict the value of
30ex as "ex" varies from 1 font family to another.
This testcase would require Ahem font and to set it on the root element.

regards, Gérard
