minimal HTML file exposing the rendering issue

When KaTeX is used with a webkit version >= 606, fraction lines do not render correctly.

This is independent of the operating system used. On the KaTeX side, this is tracked under https://github.com/KaTeX/KaTeX/issues/1775. After spending much time investigating, the bug seems to be on the webkit side. I myself have tried different versions of the JavaFX WebView component on Windows, MacOS and Linux, which are all based on a WebKit version of 606 or newer, and none renders fraction lines correctly. Linux users of WebKitGTK+ have also reported this bug.

Since Safari renders correctly, I checked Safari's WebKit version and asked a WebKitGTK+ user to test with that specific version and got this reply:
I use WebKitGTK+ in Ubuntu. Version WebKit engine is 605.1.15 (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/13.0 Safari/605.1.15). The engine the \frac-line displays correct.

So this seems really to be a regression from WebKit 605.x to 606+.
