The CSSWG resolved to allow implementations to implement past the ceiling
(but must implement up to the ceiling, of course, and must use the fallback
style for whatever happens after the UA's own ceiling).

So that means the test needs to allow two different renderings: one with
the fallback, one with a correct Hebrew numeric representation. (CSSWG
reftests can express this requirement by linking to two separate references.)


Simon, is there any number that is definitively past the limits of the
numbering system?
