$('div').getStyle('padding-top') returns "1em" in Internet Explorer
and "12px" in Firefox. It appears that Firefox has recursively
multiplied all its ancestor's font-sizes to get the absolute value of
12px. This is actually better for the particular GUI I'm making. Is
there anyway for Internet Explorer to return an absolute value also? I
think I could do this by using absolute values in my CSS, but that's
going to ruin my modular CSS framework.
