Yes, I have heard it before.

I remembered the search term for the test.

 From there is a deeper link to the acid2 

FWIW, Mozilla 1.7.7 on FC1 fails the test.

Of course the test has this disclaimer at the bottom.

Note: some 827 people (rough estimate, contents may have settled 
during shipping) have written to point out that the CSS used in the 
test is invalid. This is deliberate, as a means of exposing the 
ability of user agents to handle invalid CSS properly.
