I spent quite a bit of time trying to create a reftest for


and I'm giving up.

If I choose/set FreeSerif font as my default font in Firefox 11.0, Opera
11.62 and Chrome 18.0.1025.142, then I have reftest which will work
without requiring to define a specific line-height value for the 3rd
first-letter of the test.

But if I choose/set another font, say, DejaVu Serif font, then I notice
  Firefox 11.0 would require line-height: 1.17
  Chrome 18.0.1025.142 would require line-height: 1.17
  Opera 11.62 would require line-height: 1.18

So, it seems that browsers implement various line-height values
differently for different fonts. So, I do not see how this can be worked
around ..

Here's the reftest I've been working on:
