Test case

WebKit eats a huge amount of memory if we are trying to load texts with really large font-size. E.g.: the following test uses all the 8G of my memory and the only solution to kill the browser is a complete PC reboot:

<style type="text/css">

    * {



I've run the test on release and debug EFL builds, but I'm not sure that it is a port specific issue or not. It would be great if someone could validate it on other ports too.
