Apologies if the www-style list is the wrong place for this, but
google searches seem to indicate that Tab might be the only person who
knows about this feature :-)


I stumbled across this "bug" the other day and reported
it:https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107380


Looking at the UA stylesheet for WebKit, I see lots of references to
0__qem, which I
learned is a "quirky em", but not a lot of info exists on it.
I would imagine this is supposed to be quirks mode only behavior, but it
causes the bug I link to above, which seems like fairly odd behavior to
program for.

Is my bug a bug, or expected behavior? And if its expected, where can I
find specs or an explanation of why that is the desired behavior?


What is the point/reason for "quirky ems"?
