Accurate ex unit implementation

Initial condition: you must have the Ahem font (March 2006 version) installed

Expected results: the black box should be 300px by 300px

This testcase is void for now. The CSS 2.1 offers a loose and flexible implementation of ex as a length unit offering 2 distinct, separate manners to implement it. IE 8 RC1 build 18372 is not able to determine xHeight font info (sxHeight) in several fonts.

Actual results in Opera 10.0 alpha build 1229: the black box is 187px by 187px

Opera 10.0 assumes 1ex = = 0.5em which is incorrect

Actual results in Safari 3.2 build 525.26.13: the black box is 375px by 375px

Safari 3.2 assumes 1ex = = 1em which is incorrect

Firefox 1.x, Firefox 2.x, Firefox 3.x, Seamonkey 2.x, K-meleon 1.x all pass this test.
