Just an extra obversation: Opera (after making two little changes to the  
style rules [1]) gives exactly the same rendering of the test as Firefox  
(tried Opera 9.25 and 9.50, Firefox 2 and 3b2).


[1] I replaced "1000%" and "2000%" with the equivalent "10em" and "20em",  
and "Helvetica" with "Arial". Opera doesn't perform automagic font  
subsitution on Windows like IE and FF do, and doesn't allow such large  
percentage font sizes apparently.
