I could change those pages to work in Gecko by rewriting to use mozmm as I have in and but AFAIK there is neither standard nor proprietary equivalents for Opera, IE and/or Webkit to make them work regardless of UA.

Since the new spec. was intended to be a clarification of existing practice, and few (if any) browsers changed behavior, I guess I am curious to know what broke here, apart from the obvious (that a true 1-inch bar on a billboard display would be invisible at normal viewing distances).
