complete description of this issues

The first-letter pseudo-element represents the first letter of the first line
of a block, if it is not preceded by any other content (such as images or
inline tables) on its line. It allows that first letter to be styled
individually, without markup. It may be used for "initial caps" and "drop
caps", which are common typographical effects in text in Latin script. Drop
initial is a typographic effect emphasizing the initial letter(s) of a block
element with a presentation similar to a 'floated' element. The drop initial
effect may also be used for writing systems which use different alignment
strategies. For example, in Devanagari the hanging baseline may be preferred.
In that case the primary connection point connects the text-after-edge of the
initial letter with the text-after-edge of the nth line, but the secondary
connection point connects the hanging baselines of the initial letter and the
initial line.
