Above is from a quick and crude check, hardly exhaustive, possibly some 
should not be included, but likely a similar number have been omitted. A few

modified to misbehave in the same manner as all other latest browser versions 
by assuming 12pt = 16px.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
