With line height set to 100%, MSIE displays 40px Comic Sans as
40/56px. It displays 40px Verdana at 40/49px. Similar discrepancies
appear when point values are used.

Pages with drop-shadowed text via negative margins that look good
with the current MSIE are going to look pretty bad when MS implements
line spacing properly.
