Hi!  Sounds fine ...

 a> <HMTL><BODY> TEXT IS NI<EM>C</EM>E </BODY></HTML>

 a> where normal text has a margin-left: 2em
 a> and EM-text has a margin-left: 4em

I assume:
BODY { display: block; }
EM { display: inline; }

In this case, anonymous inline boxes should be created like this:

<HTML><BODY><anon> TEXT IS NI</anon><EM>C</EM><anon>E
</anon></BODY></HTML>

Also, there is no such thing as properties applied to 'normal text',
so I assume you mean that BODY has margin-left: 2em (or that the text
is inside a P with margin-left: 2em).

Thus, it should look something like this (the '|' is the left margin
of the viewport).

 |  TEXT IS NI    CE

... and probably with the C emphasized in some unspecified way.
