Arron, I've labelled this test as "NeedsWork" because

1- Ahem font does not provide, does not have a glyph for ideographic space

2- the default browser font, acting as a fallback in such case, could
also not have a glyph for ideographic space; the proper fallback for the
test is not assured.

The test, in order to be rehabilitated, would need to force the
selection and usage of an installed font that we know uses/has the glyph
for ideographic space.

I am not sure if and how this test can be rehabilitated. A special font
or maybe a variation of the Ahem font would need to be carefully
crafted, I guess, for such test.
