I also searched for "braces in style attribute":

WebKit and IE9 in non-compat view don't support this quirk.

Then I searched for "space before unit":

$ grep -iaPo  
web200904 > space-before-unit.txt
6265 matches

Firefox doesn't support this quirk. Opera used to, but we have now dropped  
it because supporting it broke some sites.

Can we also drop the braces in style attribute quirk? (Note that the data  
does not include external style sheets, so the second quirk might have  
more usage than the first.)
