Just want to confirm that there should be two tiny words on this page.

1) Firefox 3.6 and IE9 display both words the same sizes as expected
2) WebKit has a bug with font sizes below 0.5px (displaying the 0.4999px
text larger)
3) Opera fails to display either words

As usual, it's disturbing to find such a basic test not exhibiting
cross-browser consistency at this stage of SVG deployment, but thankfully
there are at least two implementations in this case :-/

Is there a test to cover this in the suite?
