Special Font Handling Test Case

View in Opera or IE7 to see special case font handling for the <pre> element.

Odd behavior in Gecko though, it appears that by adding to the font-family
(body here) on the parent element something besides a generic family that the
parent style is ignored when the font-family on the child doesn't match. That

body { font-family: fantasy, sans-serif; }
.child { font-family: foo-bar; } 

actually gets you "serif" which is the browser default. However:

body { font-family: monospace; }
.child { font-family: foo-bar; } 

Gets .child to be "monospace" which seems like an odd way to handle this.

The more I look into this the more complicated the "logic" behind what the
browsers are really doing gets...
