simplified testcase from

I've trimmed this down to it's simplest. Load in Mozilla and compare with IE to
see that we display the headline text smaller than the storyline text.	If you
remove the font tag or you close the first div, then things look the same in
Moz and IE (the storyline text shrinks).

Opera, safari and IE render the testcase the same way Firefox does not. The bug is still there with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; fr; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20090120 Shiretoko/3.1b3pre
