Hello,

[RC6]

This test would need to be using a font-size dividable by 5 for
accurate, reliable, trustworthy vertical baseline-alignment position.
But this is not practical if the test intends to test the reserved
font-size keyword 'medium'.

When using Ahem font, 'line-height: normal' has to be converted to '1'
otherwise Gecko-based browsers will use '1.2' while other browsers will
use '1' and then this makes creating a reftest unreliable, untrustworthy
(think of the vertical scrollbar).

I think this font-144 test should be removed.

This is the same test as

[RC6]
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20110323/html4/line-height-121.htm

[nightly-unstable]
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/line-height-121.htm

which I upgraded to use 'line-height: 1' and a font-size dividable by
5px. Here too, I believe we should remove such font-145 test. Doing so
would still leave line-height-121 test as is.

Note that

is exactly the same as
