    Indeed this display is correct, unless you would look for 3 distinct forms
    for rows 8-11.
    I haven't tried this particular browser. Apart from IE I tried Google Chrome
    and Sea Monkey, and none give the right display. Prilop has not said which
    browser he uses, but at least all this shows that it is not a matter of
    typeface, but of browser, and this example provides an interesting test for
    the browsers.
    Clearly for stability one needs a pdf.
