E-mailing this to the WHATWG list instead as Implementors keeps bouncing.

Found the problem. The "in body" insertion mode says to "reconstruct the
active formatting elements" for any character token. That should probably
only happen for non space characters. When I made that change I passed the
testcase given and didn't regress any other testcase.

I should note though that Firefox handles a newline differently from a
space. See:

In case of a space it seems the active formatting elements are
reconstructed.
