The "dangling" ex is there since it is part of CSS2 quoted text. In XSL 
(1.1 as well as 1.0) we only make use of the "em" unit - see 5.9.11 
production 28. 

There have been suggestions that the CSS2 definitions plus the "XSL mod" 
definitions be merged into pure XSL definitions (and thus removing most 
mentions of CSS2). If there is enough support for this from the user 
community/W3C - as you can imagine it is quite a lot of editorial work - 
so that this goes ahead then "extraneous" text like this can be removed.

lengths, typo?







7.16.4

The "font-size" is, however, used to define the "em" and "ex" units,
and the "line-height" has a role in the "vertical-align" property.


No other mention of the 'ex' relative length.

Should this have gone?
