[whatwg] Bad CSS on the multipage version

Dear Anne:

I do not think you can accuse Microsoft of letting a bug in EM.  
Things like EM and EX are very GUI-dependent.

I do not have enough time and devotion to keep several browsers up to date.

(I admit I have Safari installed 
but I understand it should not be used until fixed 
according to the recent security advisory).

However, if you have another browser at hand, 
just save the source as an HTML document, 
replace the EM with EX and navigate to it.
It may show some unwanted vertical white space; 
even if it does, it is still better than IE not showing the heading at all.

Best regards,

It sounds like a bug in your browser. Did you test other browsers with  
your suggested replacement rule? I'd expect that to not work.
