Hello all,

I will submit later (probably next week) these 2 testcases (hopefully
along with others on vertical-align and line-height):

CSS Test: 'vertical-align: text-bottom' - line-height
(draft for now)

CSS Test: 'vertical-align: text-top' - line-height
(draft for now)

Right now, Firefox 7.0.1, Opera 11.52, Chrome 14.0.835.202, Safari 5.1.1
and Konqueror 4.7.2 pass these vertical-align-11[7|8]a testcases while
IE8 and IE9 fail.

As always, I welcome feedback, comments.

regards, Gérard
