I forgot to mention something:

In this example IE also seems to treat the size specification (1em) as 
12pt rather than a multiple of the default font size. This also seems not 
to scale at all, no matter what the default font size is set to (whereas 
in Navigator 4.x it works correctly - or at least how I would expect it 
to work - relative to the default size).
