looks like this when base font is used:
<p><basefont face="Arial" size="3">test</p>

I think it should be made officially obsolete. It should be inserted
into the DOM as an empty element, but UAs should ignore it. UAs may
choose to support it at their own risk, but must not do so by breaking
the DOM like IE does.
