FYI: Chrome/FF/IE all render the same on first-letter-001-ref.html, but on the first-letter-001 Chrome and FF render more closely while IE renders this the same as first-letter-001-ref. Haven't had a chance to dig too much into first-letter yet but if your ref test is set up correctly then I would suggest this is a bug in Chrome/FF.

I would like to get some feedback from some of the people that work on Gecko since the majority of the work falls on them with this change.
