Using M13 2000012520 on WinNT 4.0 SP4 and Red Hat 6.1:

The box acid shows unexpected an newline between "bar" and "maids". Supposedly,
CSS1-compliant browsers should display the box acid URL (above) pixel-for-pixel
identically to this reference GIF:
http://style.verso.com/boxacidtest/vd/layout.gif

Is this a CSS1 compliance problem, or does the box acid test text exaggerate
when it says pixel-for-pixel and actually vary depending on installed fonts?

cc:ing dbaron who probably knows. Thanks! ;->
In my copy of Mozilla, it looks just like the reference rendering.  If you don't
have Verdana installed, I suspect the text will fit on one line rather than
break into two.

It's not completely clear from the report what you're seeing, but I suspect
that's it, and this bug is invalid...  (Isn't the newline expected?)

Aha, I do indeed have Verdana installed. A font issue, as I suspected. Good 
enough for DB is good enough for me. INVALID. Thanks David!
